IMPORTANT UPDATE 2021 Puffing Billy Running Festival postpoNed

Dear Runners,

We would like to share an important update for our plans for the 2021 Puffing Billy Running Festival.

The health and safety of runners, spectators, volunteers, staff, and the wider community will always be our most important priority. To ensure we offer a COVID-19 safe event for all involved a decision has been made to postpone our event to the second half of 2021, with an exact date to be confirmed in the coming months.

We look forward to sharing with you our new date and once again wish to thank you for your ongoing support.

Puffing Billy Running Festival Team.

About Us

Built in 1900 to serve the local communities that lived in the hills, carrying anything from passengers to timber, livestock, potatoes and plants, Puffing Billy Railway is a century old not-for-profit steam railway attraction that connects people with the past, their environment and each other.

Continuing to puff daily (except Christmas Day) with the support of over 600 passionate volunteers, Puffing Billy Railway invites you to ride in our open side carriages as you journey over the hills, down the valleys and into the lush forest on the original 24 kilometre mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook.

Proceeds from the Puffing Billy Running Festival go towards heritage railway projects and the continued preservation of the 120-year-old, not-for-profit steam railway.
