February 8th, 2014 - 9a.m. Start

Urban Run and Stair Challenge

Well, what a morning.  Thank you for coming out and participating.  The 2014 wazUPwidis ended up being 3.45 horizontal miles with 1040 total steps.  Mountain Junkies LLC and Roanoke City Parks and Recreation had a great time putting this together and putting you through the quad burning fun.  We hope you had a great time. 

A big thank you goes out to our sponsors listed below and both volunteer sponsors.  It was the help of the Bedford Humane Society and the Blue Ridge Trail Runners that allowed us to add the Church Avenue garage and the additional mileage to get us over the 5k distance and the 1000 step mark.  I think we've got a great course but who knows what 2015 will bring.

for taking pics at the Transportation Museum);

We'll get them posted in the next day or two to our Facebook Page.


If you didn't stay for the awards, we will have them at our office, Gilbert Chiropractic, for 2 weeks.  After that they go back into the mix for 2015.

Congratulations to everyone that came out this morning.  Enjoy the sore quads tomorrow and know that you participated in a very tough challenge.  For those of you that are new to Mountain Junkies events, check out our other races and our Roanoke Non Ultra Trail Series.  Next up is the 3/1/14 Explore Your Limits 5/10k.
