The Runaway Train celebrates the Windsor Hill railway path, with a rugged trail race and a feast in Shepton Mallet market place.

The 8½ mile and 3 mile running races are super scenic, taking in woods, valleys, distant hills, dark tunnels and high viaducts, finishing right in the heart of Shepton Mallet.
Read more about the routes here.

Walkers and families may also take part, either with an early start on the full runner’s route or a shorter version to Ham Woods and back. More info here.

Everyone then comes together in Shepton Mallet market place for a lunch-time boxty feast.
