Join the athletes of the Denby Dale Athletics Club for their annual Race the Train night, as runners try to Beat Badger!

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 to Cancer Research UK.

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

If you would like to take part, please contact the Denby Dale Athletics Club so they know to expect you.
