The 5th annual Tuscazoar 100 will be held at Camp Tuscazoar in the beautiful hills of Tuscarawas county on Aug 31st 2024. This year, we are mixing things up and you will be running the course BACKWARDS! All distances from 25 miles to 100 miles will be running the course in the opposite direction this year. It's still the same beautiful course, same challenging race and still ALL the food, but in REVERSE! In addition to our traditional 100 mile, 75,mile, 50 mile and 25 mile races we have the option for you to do an a.m. or a p.m. start for the 50 and the 25 mile distances!! That's right if you are looking for a chance to do a night run this is it! 50 milers can choose an 8am or 7pm start and 25 milers can choose to start at 9am or 7pm! We also have a 75 mile option for those of you wanting a bit more than 50 but not quite 100.

Camp Tuscazoar is a nearly 100-year old Boy Scout camp. They have many accommodations to fit your needs. Plenty of primitive camping is located throughout the camp in different forms from tents, adirondack shelters, and campers/RVs, both with and without hookups. They also offer bunkhouse style cabins with beds that can be purchased per bed and a few cabins that could fit your whole crew. Please contact Camp Tuscazoar directly to make reservations. All primitive tent camping will only be $30 for the whole weekend and you will be able to camp in any designated area. You will still need to register for camping though the Camp Tuscazoar.
