There is high traffic for fall events in the area, so it is strongly recommended that you reserve your accommodations as early as possible.

Several area hotels have reserved blocks of rooms at a special rate for race participants. To get the special event rate, be sure to mention our event name ("Tussey Mountainback," except where noted differently) when making your reservation. We recommend reserving your rooms by or before September 15 to ensure availability and guarantee the event rate.

The Expo, Packet Pickup, Pre-Race Dinner and Dropbag Drop-off are at Toftrees Golf Resort & Conference Center, at One Country Club Lane, about 10 minutes by bypass from the race site. Toftrees also has a block of rooms reserved at a special rate for race participants. Their contact information is included below.

We may be able to arrange for accommodations on a limited basis at homes of local runners. Inquire at There are several options for camping in the area. For state parks, visit and click on State Parks.
