More Information

From the people who get your blood pumping and your heart soaring with events and races all year long, Mountain Junkies LLC and PLAY Roanoke are teaming up again to bring you WazUPwidis!

This urban run and stair challenge winds through downtown Roanoke, ascending to the top of 4 parking garages, over the Martin Luther King Bridge, the glass walkway, and up to the top of the iconic Wells Fargo Tower. Descend the tower to finish off this approx. 5k all in time to enjoy a festive post-race stroll (read: hobble) through the Market Building and lovely Downtown Roanoke.

This isn't for the faint of heart.

Yet, with 1000s of stairs comes vistas of the Star City that'll make you gasp with awe. Or is that to catch your breath?

The name? WazUpwidis (pron. wutz-UP-wid-this) is the breathless question you ask yourself on your way to the top of the final climb: the 320-ft Wells Fargo Tower.

The answer... glory, Star City pride, and pure joy.
That's what's up with this.

See you there!
