8th annual Laurel Run Switchbacker 10K
Tussey Mountain Ski Area - March 12, 2011

Sixty-two runners came out for the Switchbacker 10K, an out-and-back on Leg 1 of the Tussey mOUnTaiNBACK course. Sunny skies and mild temperatures greeted the runners and the route was mostly clear of snow and ice. Constantin Scheiber and Kristen Althouse dominated the field on this day. Congratulations to those for whom this was a first run in Rothrock, such as Trevor Ammons, and to the exuberance of youth, represented by the Orr family, who took on at least part of the challenging uphill section. Special thanks to Bridget, Joey, and Margaret Orr and their mom, Margaret Wismer, who did a first-class job recording results.

Thanks to series sponsor, Subway, whose 6-foot sub was efficiently polished off by the ravenous crowd.

Watch for the next Tussey Teaser, an 11 miler slated for April 9.

Subway is the Tussey Teaser Series sponsor
