Course Description

Single track & two track trail on Prison Hill. Minimal climbing on the 5K, as much climbing as I can fit in on the 10K+ route!

Course distances and routes are subject to change due to weather and trail conditions.

Registration

This run is part of a series. Registration is $20/event, $10 for students. There is a $5 procrastination fee for all race day registrations making it $25, $15 for students. Cost for shirts is $50 for a Patagonia All Weather Zip Neck technical shirt. Shirts are optional, but once you see one you will want one! Last day to order a shirt will be February 19th so they will be ready for the last event in the series on March 4. Shirts will not be offered after that date. Cash or cards only for race day registration – sorry, no checks. Minors who register race day must have a parent or guardian present to sign participant waiver and release of liability, assumption of risk and indemnity agreement.

If you have not pre-registered through this site and plan on registering the morning of the run please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to start time so that we can get everyone entered into the timing system and not delay the start of the run. Thank you!

Series Information

This is the fourth of 5 trail runs in the 8th Annual Be Bold, Run in the Cold Winter Trail Series presented by Ascent Runs. Every run in the series will have two distances to choose from, a 5K and a 10K+. The 5K will usually be between 3-4 miles. The 10K+ will be anywhere between 6-8 miles depending on conditions. If it’s nice we make it 7-8 miles. If it’s not so nice we keep it close to 6 miles. Be sure to check website and Facebook the week leading up to the run for updates. These casual runs were created to keep runners and walkers motivated through the winter months and also as a way to supplement your winter training. This series highlights the extensive trail networks surrounding Carson City, NV. There are no aid stations out on the courses so be prepared to carry your own water or sports drink. For the safety of all runners and to keep you guessing, event organizers reserve the right to change course routes and distances based on weather conditions or just for the heck of it. This series is a great trainer for the Triple Trail Challenge- Spring Edition. This series includes Carson Canyons Half Marathon, Escape From Prison Hill(EFPH) Half Marathon, and the Silver State Half Marathon.

Awards

No awards. Just the sweet satisfaction that you overcame the urge to sleep in on a cold winter morning and to go out and burn off some calories that were feeling way too at home.

Packet Pickup

Shirts and bibs can be picked up at event site on race day. All runners must check in prior to race start even if you have pre-registered to confirm presence, bib#, & distance running.

Weather

We’ll see what mother nature has in store for us this year.
