Race the Train
Race the Train is an annual run which takes place in the magnificent scenic area to the South of Cader Idris, Mid Wales. Race the Train takes place alongside as far as practicable the route taken by the Talyllyn Railway on its journey from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and back. In order to do this all courses use a mixture of public roads, lanes, un-metalled roads, tracks, agricultural land, and rough grazing pastures.
There are races of different lengths to suit different aspirations (3.5 miles, 5.5 miles, 10km and 14 miles), so there is something for everyone.
Odyssey is again the Official Charity for the event, and we are encouraging as many people to run and fundraise for us as possible. If you are interested to learn more about the event, or to sign up for one of the runs, which this year takes place on Saturday 19th August, please visit the Race the Train official website.
Alternatively you might like to come along as a volunteer to help man our charity marquee or shake a tin – if so, please do get in touch with Hugo Iffla, the Odyssey Project Director : firstname.lastname@example.org
