9 June 2020

Book Now

The Kirklees Light Railway is proud to join forces again with the Denby Dale Athletics Club for their annual Race the Train night.

This fun run see athletes attempt to Beat Badger on the run back from Shelley Station to Clayton West!

The running route is four miles long and has a 60 metre fall. The route follows footpaths, bridleways and there is a short section on some local side streets.

The race is open to all, however, competing athletes are asked to make a donation on the night to the Forget-Me-Not Children's Hospice.

In 2019, the race raised a whopping £1600 in donations for the Hospice - more than triple the amount raised in 2018!

Runners and their supporters should arrive at Clayton West Station for 7pm. The train will depart Clayton West at 7.15pm and will transport runners and supporters to the start line at Shelley.

HOW TO REGISTER

In a change to previous years, this year participants will be required to book their Beat Badger spot via our website. Participants AND spectators journeying on the train will need to book their places. There is NO fee for registering your place.

We regret that only those who have booked their place will be eligible to enter the race/travel - this is so that numbers can be kept at a sensible & safe level.
