Rothrock Challenge – Boalsburg, PA
May 23 @ 9:00 am
The Rothrock Challenge is a 25k trail race in the heart of Rothrock State Forest. The course covers almost 4,000 feet of elevation gain through coniferous forests, blooming mountain laurel, lush rhododendron, groves of ferns, rocky climbs and descents, and multiple stream crossings. There is a little of everything packed into one amazing 16 mile adventure!
The course will have three aid stations stocked with fuel and drinks: at 5.2 miles, 9.4 miles, and 13.6 miles. The cut-off time is 7 1/2 hours, which is approximately at 26 min/mile pace–very doable even as a hike! The finish includes a bonus lake plunging option as well! All participants are invited to join us for a post-race party at the Tussey Mountain pavilion afterwards (socially distanced of course 🙂 with an assortment of food trucks and locally brewed beverages! Super swaggy Rothrock Challenge sleevies guaranteed to first 250 registrants!
