Attention runners! Be part of the Tussey Mountainback 50 Mile Ultramarathon & Relay as an ultrarunner or part of a relay team! Registration is now open. The race starts and finishes at Tussey Mountain Ski and Family Fun Center.

USATF-certified, 50-mile single-loop mostly unpaved course through central Pennsylvania's scenic Rothrock State Forest during peak foliage season. Ultramarathon: Support vehicle and drop bag options. Stocked, staffed aid stations available to all ultra participants are provided at predetermined locations every 2.9 to 5.6 miles along the course. Relay: The relay consists of 12 pre-determined legs of lengths varying from 2.9 to 5.6 miles. Relay teams select a specific runner rotation order, rotating to the next runner at each transition point, and maintain that exact order through all 12 race legs. All teams must provide ONE team vehicle to transport runners to transition points where the batons are exchanged. Teams of 7 or more must use a single vehicle.

The ultra division event will start at 7 a.m. The relay division start will begin at 8 a.m. There will be a staggered start for the relay based on overall team pace. Finish time: no later than 7 p.m. Because the relay start includes several waves, runners participating in the relay should plan to have the whole day available. We regret that we cannot plan the start based on personal schedules.
