The Rattler took the win again this year despite a near-record number of competitors, with the final count sitting at 57 teams and 155 individual competitors.
THE only good news for Race the Rattler fans this year is that the iconic Gympie and Mary Valley steam train will not be hard to beat this year.
THE first female to cross the finish line, Jacqui Pennings, paced herself well over Race the Rattler's 18.5km to finish in a speedy 1hr 22min 32sec.
CLAY Dawson can tick racing the Rattler off his bucket list as not only has the Ipswich school teacher achieved another running goal, he's won the entire event.
