Our Thanks!!

I’d like to thank all you who braved the rain and supported the Swedetown trails this past weekend. Many of you have done this event numerous times. I think back to the 2005 race which was threatened by rain early in the morning but stopped just prior to the start. Although the rain didn’t stop this year it did slow down. Back then the race lengths were 12 miles and 19.5 with the long race being a lap format. The singletrack component of the race course in 2005 was about 40%. Your participation has allowed us to add enough trail to have a 30 mile event with only 1.5 miles of it repeated and have over 55% of its length on singletrack trails.
I would also like to thank our sponsors who make this event possible by paying the bills for the insurance, timing, DNR trail use permit, t-shirts, awards, etc. If you participants get a chance pick out a sponsor and let them know how much you appreciate their support of the Swedetown Trails.
The 2017 Great Deer Chase is scheduled for August 19, so mark your calendar.
Many Thanks!
Marc Norton, 2016 Director
