The following is what we’ll call a bad news sandwich. I won’t bore you with everything that has been going on behind the scenes and keep short and simple.
Good news; Happy New Year to everyone! Bam, it’s 2019!
Bad news; due to the current government shutdown the National Park Service will not be honoring any of their special use permits. This means that unless the government shutdown doesn’t end by Wednesday, we will not be able to have the Frozen Toe 10k on the Chestnut Ridge Loop Trail, as it is entirely on NPS land.
Good news; we have been in the process of securing another race venue and will be announcing it as soon as all details are worked out.
Not all participants give us accurate contact information, so if you know of others that are signed up for the event please let them know of the above information and to be on the lookout for another announcement. A preregistered list can be found here https://mountainjunkies.net/Frozen_Toe_files/Frozen_Toe_PreReg.htm
Special note; unless you have access to an indoor facility that can hold 275 runners, that is near 6.2 miles of trail, please don’t call or email us with questions. We will make an announcement, with all the updates, as soon as we can.
