About the course
Once again, the Swedetown Trails Club will be serving up some zippy singletrack in the 17th running of the Great Deer Chase on Saturday, August 21st, 2021. The course features well over 50% of its distance on the twisty, flowy singletrack for which Swedetown is famous. The race features the U.P. Singlespeed Championship, categories for fat bikes, and the usual age divisions for geared bikes.
Awards will take place at 3:00 p.m. at the corner of 5th and Oak Street, downtown Calumet.
