Rothrock State Forest

For those with adventure on their minds, mild temps gave way to sunshine to usher in the 2016 Tussey Teasers Series, and around 50 people gave the series a nice kickoff. Some residual snow from two weeks earlier was still along the roadsides on Boal Gap Road, but the course route was clear except for one dicey spot at the fork in the road on the unmaintained part.

Eric Marshall finished first with an unofficial course record, and Meira Minard was first woman.

Special congratulations are due to Cameron Drahnak, who ran his first 10K at age 10!

Thanks to Adam Ilgen for snagging the group’s post-race Subway party sub.

The next Tussey Teaser is the Laurel Run Switchbacker 10K, on March 5, at Tussey Mountain. For the rest of the series schedule and a link to the waiver, visit http://tusseymountainback.com/events/tussey-teasers.

Note: All runners who complete Teaser #1 through Teaser #5 are eligible for a grand prize to be awarded at the end of Teaser #5. Those who also completed this run, Teaser #0, will earn a special bonus.
