It’s Tussey Teaser Time!
The Tussey Teasers are five great opportunities to test your fitness in the beauty of the Rothrock State Forest, familiarize yourself with the Tussey Mountainback 50 Mile Relay and Ultramarathon course, and get acquainted with the friendly folks of the Nittany Valley Running Club. Teasers 1, 2, and 5 are free! Teaser # 3 features age and gender graded awards (not your typical age-group awards, but adjustments to each runner’s finishing time based on their age and gender which effectively pits every runner against the rest of the field.

29th Annual Black Moshannon YMCA 10K and 5K Races – Saturday, May 23rd
I wholeheartedly recommend you make plans to be on the starting line for the 29th Annual Black Moshannon YMCA 10K and 5K races on Saturday, May 23rd. Dave Caslow and many other friendly folks from the Black Moshannon YMCA really do a nice job of putting on these races in the beautiful Black Moshannon State Park. My gang and other families from our region have made this event a family tradition. We enjoy a great race through the park in the morning and get a jump on summer with a picnic afterwards. It all makes for a really nice day!
You can request a race entry form by sending an e-mail to or to Alternatively, you can call the Moshannon Valley YMCA of Phillipsburg at 814-342-0889 or Dave Caslow at 814-339-6903.
