The Deerstalker is an "adventure run" with distance options at 5 km (ish) and 10 km (and a bit). The organisers describe it affectionately as a "big, muddy romp" through the countryside, forests and hills around the famous Borders village of Innerleithen, which is currently renowned as a World centre for mountain biking. It will be renowned for much more than this when the Deerstalker comes to town! Traquair House, the oldest inhabited house in Scotland, provides a stunning backdrop at the event centre, where runners will be greeted by Tweed-clad sporting officials and their very own, specially brewed "Deerstalker Ale", already fermenting nicely under the watchful eyes of the Laird, who has been brewing beer here for generations.

The inaugural event in 2007 caused quite a stir. Participants were toughened and tickled by the whole spectacle. The event is one month earlier this year, just to give that big pond after the start even more chance of freezing over!

armadillojam provided the logo and website design for this event. The logo had to incorporate the image of the deerstalker hat with an element of the race aspect being present too. The website had to add to this the "Old Country Manor House" feeling which was very much the theme for the event.
