The Big Rail Diversity Challenge was created to highlight the benefits of gender-balance and diversity in the UK rail industry.

Launched in 2016 by Women in Rail in collaboration with multi-media marketing specialists Nimble Media Ltd, this flagship event helps break down barriers, change the image of rail and ultimately bridges the skills gap in the sector.

A cross between “It’s a Knockout” and “The Krypton Factor”, The Big Rail Diversity Challenge is an all-inclusive event and provides a platform for everyone to team build and network while taking part in a mixture of fun challenges consisting of mental-, physical- and skill-based activities within gender balanced-teams.

The event showcases that gender-diverse teams work better together and raises awareness of the business benefits attained when companies improve equality, diversity, and inclusion within their workforce.


Teams can represent the same company or a group of companies.

A team of 10 must be gender diverse with ideally a 50/50 mix of male and female participants.

All teams will receive:

  • Breakfast on arrival, picnic-style lunch, afternoon tea and soft drinks.
  • Branded water bottle
  • Official team T-Shirts displaying your team name
  • A fabulous fun-packed day with a serious message to deliver at The Big Rail Diversity Challenge
  • Participation in a series of physical, mental and skill-based challenges

The cost to enter a team of ten (10) is £2,600.00 + VAT.


If you would like to be involved but would rather watch and cheer than participate we would love to have you join in the fun.

Spectators will receive breakfast on arrival, picnic-style lunch, afternoon tea and soft drinks and an official team t-shirt displaying your team name.

The cost for spectators is £160.00 + VAT per person.
