A big thanks to the Bellarine Railway for supporting the BRT Run.There will be a service especially for BRT Run participants, family & friends as part of the run this year. The train will be available in either direction at the approx times below and is the perfect way to travel to the start of the 17km run from Drysdale. The Bellarine Railway kiosks will also be open at both stations for food / refreshments. Please use the train if at all possible to ensure this option remains viable for future years.The train runs adjacent to the trail for most of the course so you’ll get a great view of the runners along the way!


One way: $13 (adults), $11 (children U18).

Return: $15 (adults), $13 (children U18).

NB, these prices are ONLY for the train participating in the run, not the regular 11am service. Normal adult price is $20 one way, $30 return.

Click on the image above or click HERE to purchase tickets to save heaps of time on the day. Simply print your tickets at home or store on your phone if taking that with you and then head straight to the train on the day. You do NOT need to check in at the train ticketing office if you have pre-purchased tickets.

Otherwise tickets can be purchased at the ticket office on the day at either Queenscliff or Drysdale. Please allow enough time to purchase tickets as delays will delay the start of the 17km run.

IMPORTANT: It’s NOT a race against the train and the train departs approx 5mins after the start for this reason. As everyone should know, this is NOT a race & roads to cross are not closed. There are also a couple of points where you cross the train track so please look out.


  • Depart Queenscliff ~ 8.35am
  • Arrive Drysdale ~ 9.25am
  • Depart Drysdale ~9.45am
  • Arrive Queenscliff ~10.30am


We can transport belongings on the train back to Queenscliff for those doing the 17km run but we cannot guarantee the safety of any valuables. Simply deposit your bags on the train prior to the start of the run.
