The Great Train Race isn't simply a race amongst the competitors - it's an exciting challenge competing against the steam locomotive, Puffing Billy.

The race route extends 13.5 kilometres through the hills and fern gullies of the picturesque Dandenong Ranges from Belgrave to Emerald Lake Park.

Along tarmac roads and multi-purpose trails competing against Australia's favourite steam engine, this unique run makes the Great Train Race an event not to be missed.

The Great Train Race is organised by Puffing Billy Railway volunteers and is an annual fundraiser for the Puffing Billy Preservation Society – this year's contribution will again go to Menzies Creek Museum redevelopment project.
