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.
In 2016, all proceeds and any additional donations went towards the Puffing Billy Menzies Creek Museum Redevelopment project.
The Great Train Race is an annual fundraiser for the Puffing Billy Preservation Society – this years contribution will go to Menzies Creek Museum redevelopment project
Note: Prequalifying data will be required when registering for the 2017 Great Train Race.
More information on how to register will be available late January 2017.
