The Tussey Teasers are a series of recreational runs in Rothrock State Forest that take place from February through June on parts of the mOUnTaiNBACK course. There are no trails on these runs or on the 50-mile race course. The Teasers are ideal for anyone itching to discover for the first time - or get back to - some superb running venues. The six Tussey Teaser runs are free with timing and water provided; one, the May Sidewinder 10K & 20K, includes age- and gender-adjusted (WMA style) results to level the playing field. Runners completing Teasers #1-5 (February's Teaser #0 is a bonus) are eligible for a grand “door prize.”
