If you are looking for an event with a bit of a difference – then look no further!

On Sunday 6th January 2013 Kingston will be playing host to quite a unique Event. One that finds people running or walking alongside the historic Kingston Flyer Steam Train!

New Balance - Race the Train

There are two events to choose from on Race Day. A 5km Run and Walk starting and finishing opposite the Kingston Railway Station and another Race where participants will have the chance to run alongside or beat the ‘Kingston Flyer’ over a 12km course between Fairlight Railway Station and Kingston Railway Station. Friends and family will also have the chance to board the Train in Fairlight and cheer for their runners along the way!

Naturally one would think that there would be no contest between MAN and MACHINE; however on Race Day the ‘Kingston Flyer’ will travel at a speed that most will keep up with the Train and if you are quick enough - Beat the Train!

It’s not every day you can run alongside a Steam Train! Let’s see whose puffing the most at the Finish Line!
