Course Description

Predominantly single track trail with some technical rocky sections. This is wild horse country – if you don’t run into some wild horses, you will definitely run into some wild horse manure! Previous routes for both distances have been lollipop loops. Might change it up this season, we’ll see. As usual with this series, the 5K will stay as close to a 5K no matter what the conditions are. The 10K+ will get stretched out a little further if conditions are favorable. Check for updates the week before the run.

Registration

This run is part of a series where every run is just $20, $10 for students. Patagonia All Weather Zip Neck event shirts are an additional $50 and optional. The last day to order a shirt will be February 19th so that they will be ready for the final run in the series on March 4. Shirts will not be offered after that date. There is a $5 procrastination fee for all race day registrations($25, $15 for students). Same day registration is cash or card only – sorry, no checks. We appreciate your understanding on that one. 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 third 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. 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 that were feeling way too at home.

Packet Pickup

Bib#s and shirts can be picked up the morning of the event prior to the start. Please allow for enough time to check in so that we can get started on time. All runners must check in prior to the start of the run even if you have pre-registered to confirm presence, bib#, and distance running. Thank you.

Weather

Probably cold, it’s January!
