The Mighty Deerstalker

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 GPSwatch.

This is probably the hardest off-road-Tweed-clad-pipe-lit-plus-four-and-headtorch-wearing run that exists. You will be sent 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.

Tough Mudder 2019

Do you want to test your endurance in one of the toughest obstacle races? Get sponsored to climb walls, crawl through underwater tunnels and swim in icy lochs all while getting really muddy! Entry is now open for Scotland’s next Tough Mudder which will be held at Drumlanrig Castle, Dumfries and Galloway.

Drumlanrig is a fairytale castle set in 80,000 acres of the most majestic, scenic Scottish countryside you’ll ever see. Sound nice? Well you can forget “nice” because Tough Mudder is turning the fairytale into your worst nightmare. Lung busting hills, ice cold lochs and strength sapping mud combine to make the home of the Braveheart legend a brutal test for the most seasoned Legionnaire and a baptism of fire for first time Mudders. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
