5K RUN

Welcome to the very first ACRES Project Adventure Challenge 5 kilometer race.

We are sure you will enjoy the short run in the beautiful Rothrock State Forest.

This is a road race on paved and dirt roads.

 

The race will take place at the Tussey Mountain ski area, 301 Bear Meadows Road, Boalsburg, PA 16827.

 

We have a strict limit of 100 runners, so please register early.

Registration opens on Friday 25 Aug 2023

This run will take you south on paved

Bear Meadows Road until you turn right

onto dirt Laurel Run Road. You will continue up Laurel Run Rd, past the first switchback, and turn around at the second one.

 

There is a 76 meter gentle climb to the

turn around point, and of course, then

same back to the finish.

 

Don’t worry about memorizing the course,

we will have signs and people at all the turns.

The course will be marked at each kilometer.

 

Each runner will receive a very cool water bottle and earn points toward the overall competition for the day.
