Rothrock Trail Challenge

The event is scheduled for Saturday June 4th, 2016 at Tussey Ski Area in Boalsburg, Pa. The RTC is part of the Trailrunner Magazine's Trophy Series. We are honored to have played host to 12 out of the top 12 Trophy Series winners from 2015. The RTC will take runners and hikers through tunnels of rhododendron, towering Hemlocks, blooming mountain laurel, seas of fern, and mini boulder fields. The 17.2 mile course features mostly single track trails with 3 aid stations strategically spaced about every four miles. The signature section of the course remains the ever daunting Shingletown Gap cliff trail.    


Even the fastest of runners put on the brakes here as they scramble down through the cliffs with extreme caution. But just as runners had to run down into the gap, they must climb back up the other side. This mile 10 section is usually the breaking point for most runners.

We changed the course a little last year and runners loved the changes. We took out Kettle (nasty downhill) and Bear Meadows (swampy) and added New Laurel (fast winding downhill) and Fleet Foot (steep climb) and a mile of Mid State (technical). The course will be about 2 miles shorter, but we feel it will a much more enjoyable course with the new changes. Train hard for this one!!!

Registration for the event is open and we expect 400 runners and hikers. May 15th is the registration deadline. After the 15th, the site will be taken down. There will be NO race day regsitration. No exceptions!!! Bring a change of clothes and stay a while after you finish. We have great food and beer for all participants and spectators. Even take a dip in the spring fed pond at the finish!!!
