Backtrack competition aims to reduce the amount of trespass on the UKs railways. This award-winning competition launched in 2020 and is now back for its third year.

This year we are especially focused on challenging people who trespass on our railway for likes and shares on social media. It’s dangerous and can cause death or serious injury.
We are asking entrants to create a simple but powerful message, to make others aware of the dangers of trespassing and to encourage them to stop.

There are 2 options:

  1. Film yourself saying why you would not trespass on the railway (also known as a pledge) using the pledge card on this website.
  2. Design a small graphic/picture sharing 1 rail safety message, this should be about the size of a postcard so that it can be shared on social media.
