posted about a great event in Yorkshire called Chase the train which follows the steam train's route, family/ supporters can go for a train ride while the runners try to beat the train!
Well, I was reading the information about my race next week (Road to the Isles 10k) and noticed that we cross a railway line which also has steam trains (Harry Potter's no less!). The race starts at 1pm and the train will be crossing our route at 1.27pm (4k). That got me thinking that maybe I could try and race the train and cross the track before it arrives. Or perhaps try and arrive at the same time then I will have to stop at the gates which will give me a few minutes breather! Either way it will be an incentive to keep up the pace. Looking forward to the event - views will be amazing
