Event Information

The only road race against a steam train in the United States of America.

The Steam Train Half Marathon and 2 person relay is the only road race against a steam train in the United States of America. Runners race the train while families and freinds can ride the train and cheer on the runners as you leave the station together, again at the relay exchange point, and finish line... that is unless your runner gets there first!

  • The Relay entry fee includes transport to and from the relay handover point via the train.
  • Individual Plus entry includes two (2) train tickets for friends / family members. Register before May 1 and these tickets cost $10, after May 1 they are $15.
  • Don't want to run? Register as a Supporter for free and purchase train tickets ($15 each) to follow the race from the comfort of the train!

Race Schedule

  • Registration - 6:00 am
  • Race Strart - 7:30 am

The starting whistle is at 7:30 am! The staring line will be right next to the Essex Steam Train, and both runners and the train carrying your family and friends will be leaving with you!

Each relay team is comprised of two runners. The first leg starts at the starting whistle at 7:30 am sharp, as you leave from the station with the train carrying friends, family, and your relay teammate!
