The 8th Frozen Toe 10k is still on for those that can still make it, but considering last night and this morning’s weather I urge you to be careful and consider safety first when deciding to participate or not.
Seems like this info has slowly made it around the community of trail users looping around Chestnut Ridge.
The area was once mined for iron ore. Once you consider this, the trail on the west side of the parkway spur starts to take on a different look.
As I find info on it I’ll try to post it here or to the Frozen Toe page. But John Carlin did a good write up here – http://johncarlinsvirginia.blogspot.com/2011/11/of-giant-holes-and-iron-mines.html

There may be a change or two prior to the event but this is who made it in.
See you on January 7th.
Back for it’s 5th year, the brainchild of Roanoke City Parks and Recreation and Mountain Junkies LLC, wazUpwidis is one of the most unique races you’ll ever have the chance to run. Last year during the event, nearly 370 participants experienced the uniqueness of this race. The attendance numbers are expected to grow this year, so make sure you’re a part of the growing phenomenon.
What’s up with the race…and the name?
Simply put, the objective of wazUpwidis is to run through, up and over a few of Downtown Roanoke’s landmarks, traversing surprisingly difficult elevation in two of the city’s parking garages and finishing with a breathtaking climb and descent in the Wells Fargo Tower. You may be able to run, and you may be able to climb – but can you do both?
