Your Competitor - the train

Based on personal training schedules and abilities, each runner nominates which race train they compete against.

As with all 120+year-old steam trains, their race day capacity varies, mostly due to the weather and therefore the condition of the track.

To give runners a guide, below are the Race Trains times for the past few years.
