THE 2016 Nelson Mandela Bay Train Race takes place on Sunday, October 2 and local schools are encouraged to secure their entries soonest before the race sells out.

This unique biathlon style relay race against a Metrorail Train is unique to the metro and the only event of its kind in SA.

Teams comprising five runners and one mountain bike rider will challenge for line honours and floating trophies at the event which will see hundreds of teams competing against a train over the 38km distance between PE and Uitenhage Stations.

The categories of entry include school teams, social teams, club teams and corporate teams with hospitality and t-shirt packages on offer.

Spectator tickets for the train, at R60 per ticket for the return trip, are selling fast.
