General Update

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As most are aware, there will be no DL67 event held in 2016. We are going to make another attempt to kick start the race in 2017 so please keep us in mind when planning your 2017 race calendar.

The Deer Lake 67 has a new contact email address as follows:

Please send any questions you may have regarding the race to this address and we will make an effort to respond to it promptly.

See you in 2017.

Race Update: The 2015 & 2016 Deer Lake 67

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As of this evening, the 2015 Deer Lake 67 is officially cancelled. Thank you very much to all who have supported this year’s race through registration, comments and ideas.  Unfortunately, despite everyone’s effort, we are still extremely low in numbers and as such, moving forward with the event is just not feasible.

The good news is that the committee and I are still dedicated to the race and we are already putting plans in motion for 2016. Although not yet written in stone, we are looking at moving back into the Labour Day long weekend as was the case in 2013 and 2014.  In addition, we are considering the addition of a concurrent 2 person relay event as a means to grow interest in the main event. Just as with the solo event, there will be a cap on the number of teams allowed to register. As such, if this is something that interests you, be sure to secure your team slot as soon as you can.  Registration for the 2016 event will open in the first week of January 2016 and you can expect that the early bird special will not stretch as long as it did this year.

We know we have a great racing experience to offer here at the Deer Lake 67.  That being said, in order to keep it great we need participants.  If you are thinking that an ultra marathon is something that you would like to tackle in the future, set your goal now and get ready for the 2016 Deer Lake 67.

Are you up to the challenge?

2015 Deer Lake 67 in Jeopardy

Ladies & Gentlemen,
With only 13 days remaining until the end of the early bird special our registration numbers are extremely low this year. We are hoping that many of you out there have been waiting to make your commitment and will be doing so before the end of the month.

Unfortunately, with our present numbers, the 2015 Deer Lake 67 is in jeopardy of being cancelled. The official decision will be made in the first week of June, following the end of the early bird special.

With the amount of financial resources, time and effort that goes into a race like the Deer Lake 67, the race committee just cannot justify moving forward with our present registration numbers. Should the decision be made to cancel the race, all registrants will receive a full refund of their registration fee.

Are you up the the challenge? If so, register now!

Be Sure to Take Advantage of the Early Bird Special

Are you planning on running the Deer Lake 67 in 2015?

If so, be sure to take advantage of our Early Bird Special and register before the end of May.  That gives you 19 more days to guarantee that you receive a custom Race Tee in your racer kit.

We hope to see you on the starting line!
