Entries are now open for the Peak Rail 7 'Runner versus Steam'

Full details of the event and how to enter can be found on the event page
Please note that we are trying a slightly different approach to the entry system this year, and your registration through this page is the first of a two part sequence. If you are successful in registering, your place will be secured until the official entry goes live on Friday 4th March 2022. At this point you will have received an email via Webscorer providing you with the password to access the Bookitzone entry page and complete your registration with payment of the race entry fee. You will have 72 hours to action this, after which time any regsitrations still unconfirmed will be offered to those on the waiting list.
We are planning on selling the supporters train tickets for next years race direct, and you will also receive a password to access that booking form to intially reserve upto 2 seats. Registrations are welcome from Matlock AC members on the agreement a volunteer (friend or family member) is provided to assist with marshaling duties.
