The Great Train Race is for the whole family, we have events from 400m to 7km. 

Entrants go head to head against the Don River Railway Steam train.

The race starts at the iconic Don River Railway and follows the beautiful Devonport walking track/Don River all the way to Coles Beach and return.

Along the way, runners and walkers are entertained by all sorts of things and can hear the train chasing them down as it meanders it’s way through the Don Reserve. A must event for young and old.
