DSUK – Race the Train


‘We are delighted to launch the annual Race the Train event in Aviemore, where participants have an opportunity to race not only their fellow runners, but the traditional highland steam train. Many people decide to travel for this event from across Scotland to enjoy the beauty of Cairngorms for a full weekend. 


To help us tackle impacts of the pandemic, we ask all participants to fundraise for DSUK. All top fundraisers will have a chance to win prizes and go on a traditional steam train that will take them from Aviemore station to Boat of Garten starting point. 


We would be really grateful if you could share a post about the event on your social media pages, to help us promote it. Please see below draft post, feel free to change it to suit your audience:
