We are pleased to announce that after a brief hiatus in 2018 the ‘Race the Train’ gravel and mountain bike race is set to return in November 2019 under the management of Sport Projects.

Up until last year the event was run by Cranked Up Events, under the guidance of Paula Ewing as a one-person show. After five years, Paula stepped down as organiser and sought new management for the event. Paula did an amazing job running and growing this event, almost entirely on her own. It’s a spectacular achievement. We are excited to take over such a well-established race and look forward to growing it even further.

Sport Projects will now organise the 2019 ‘Race the Train’, set to take place on Saturday 16 November.

At Sport Projects we have organised some of the largest sporting events in Victoria, including the Herald Sun-Citylink Run for the Kids, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and the Olivia Newton John Wellness Walk and Research Run. We look forward to drawing on this experience to make ‘Race the Train ’a marquee event for the region and for the state of Victoria.

Registration will open in the coming weeks. You can be the first to know when this happens as well as having access to special offers by signing up to the Race the Train newsletter via the website www.racethetrain.com.au and following the Race the Train Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing you out on the track!
