Course Description

Mostly single track with some sections of fire road in Ash Canyon. Gradual ascents and descents. Snow and/or ice is always possible on this route during the winter.

12/6/16 – As of now the short course will be 4 miles of fun and the long course 8.5 miles of fun. You just need to decide how much fun you want to have!

Registration

This run is part of a series where every run is just $20, $10 for students. Patagonia event shirts are an additional $35 and optional. The last day to order a shirt will be December 25th so that they will be ready at Wild Winter Roundup January 6th. Shirts will not be offered after that date. There is a $5 procrastination fee for race day registrations. Race day registration must be cash or card – sorry, no checks. Thanks for your understanding. 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. Since the series discount option has now passed you can register for this run and the other 3 remaining runs independently on ultrasignup.com or you can register for all 4 on race day with a single credit card charge or cash.

Series Information

This is the second 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 walker 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. The Triple Trail Challenge 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 left over from too much turkey and gravy at Thanksgiving!

Packet Pickup

Bib #s and shirts can be picked up race morning. Every runner must check-in prior to the start of the run to confirm presence, bib# and distance running.

Weather

Cold. It’s a winter trail series!
