Legend tells of a cult running event deep in the Scottish Borders whose distance is a closely guarded secret, only beknownst to the Laird, his Ghillies and anyone with a GPS watch.
This is probably the hardest off-road-Tweed-clad-pipe-lit-plus-four-and-headtorch-wearing run that exists. We send you across rivers, through forests and over a mountain or 2 in the pitch dark of a chilly March night. Choose to go Half ‘Stalker or for those who have the true minerals, take on the Full ‘Stalker. You can even start with the intention to go Full and bail out on to the Half if you crumble.
Once the race is over, it’s time for the infamous Mighty Beerstalker Party in our huge heated tent; with grub, ales, bands and the trademark crowdsurfing ‘til late into the night. Party access is included with every race entry and you can roll out of the bar straight into our amazing camp-site under the stars. Get a free pint and a bacon roll the morning after the night before when you buy a camping ticket.

“I may not have done every 10K (“and the rest”) obstacle race in the UK, but I am left with no doubt in my mind: Rat Race Mighty Deerstalker is absolutely, unquestionably, unequivocally, the hardest.”
“That water wade and the scree slope climb were two of the biggest individual challenges I’ve faced in races for a long time and to have them within the space of 2km was brutal.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this race, totally pushed me out of comfort zone and the sense of accomplishment crossing the finish line, despite suffering agonising cramp, has me feeling a tad indestructible!”
All entrants to The Mighty Deerstalker get Electronic Timing, quality medal, Tech Tee, Rat Rag, free finisher photo, live MC, fully waymarked course with water station, mountain safety cover including paramedics plus a humdinger of a course. Access to the event village with a variety of facilities and catering offers is complimentary for supporters. It is no problem if you don’t have supporters to leave your keys, wallet and phone with as we provide a free valuables drop. But most importantly, you get a free ticket within your entry to enjoy the Booze, Bands and Crowd-surfin’ at the after-party!
