The Great Train Race isn't simply a race amongst the competitors - it's an exciting challenge competing against the steam locomotive, Puffing Billy!
The race route extends 13.5 km's through the hills and fern gullies of the picturesque Dandenong Ranges from Belgrave to Emerald Lake Park. The continual popularity of this unique run makes the Great Train Race an event not to be missed.
The Great Train Race is organised by Puffing Billy Railway volunteers. All proceeds and any additional donations go towards the Puffing Billy Menzies Creek Museum Redevelopment project.
All runners who successfully enter the 2016 Great Train Race will receive a $50 voucher off any Brooks adult runner, redeemable at any Active Feet store or online at activefeet.com.au.
