The image above is the design for the 2019 Deer Fly t-shirt, designed by Patrick Yewcic of
S & S Screen Printing, Indiana, PA.
The 2019 Deer Fly is now in the history books. More than 100 runners came out on a beautiful July morning to pit themselves against the trails around Yellow Creek State Park and to challenge the deer flies. Many participants come back year after year, and each year we have new runners who vow to return after having a such good time. We appreciate that.
Our thanks to Ryan Knecht of Blairsville who contacted us shortly before the race to offer to grill hot dogs and hamburgers for race finishers. This was much appreciated by racers and volunteers, and we have asked Ryan if he would be interested in doing the same thing next year. He enjoyed it as much as we did and said that he would do it again next year unless he decides to run the event himself. Ryan is the race director of the Howl the Moon 30K Trail Race which is being held Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Linn State Park near Rector, PA. See the race listing on the Local Race Schedule page.
The date has been set for the 2020 Deer Fly - Sunday, July 26, 2020. We look forward to seeing you then.
