Virtual race and Double Deer challenge

Virtual trail 1/2 marathon and Double Deer challenge!

The Fear the Deer trail 1/2 marathon is a favorite of trail runners across the country.  The event sells out early every year and so we wanted to create a way for more to enjoy these beautiful trails and create an additional challenge for pre-registered participants and aspiring ultra runners alike.

Thus, in 2017, the Virtual Fear the Deer trail 1/2 marathon and the “Double Deer challenge” was born.   Find out more below and we hope to see you on the trails in May!

Virtual race:

Can’t make it to the Deer this year?  No worries!  You don’t have to miss out on the fun.
We just launched a virtual race where you can complete the course at your own pace, earn your tee, medal and sponsor goodies and compare your performance against other virtual racers.

How it works:
Complete the course when it fits within your schedule anytime in the month of May.
