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! Course routes change every year. As usual with this series, the 5Kish will be anywhere between 3-4 miles. The 10K+ will get stretched out a little further if conditions are favorable. Check for updates the week before the run.

Basically, everyone who grants us permission, signs our permits, and provides us with event liability insurance that allow us to carry out these trail runs and have fun again.

Series Information

This is the 3rd of 5 trail runs in the 12th 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 5Kish and a 10K+. The 5Kish will usually be between 3-4 miles. The 10K+ will be anywhere between 6-9 miles depending on conditions. If it’s nice we make it 7-9 miles. If it’s not so nice we keep it close to 6 miles. 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. Walkers are welcome to any of these events. 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. The Triple Trail Challenge includes Carson Canyons Half Marathon, Escape From Prison Hill(EFPH) Half Marathon, and the Silver State Half Marathon.
