Update 11/8/15

We've decided to add a third distance to this event this season. There will be a 5K, 10K+(6.4M), and a 9 miler. Of course everything can change depending on conditions but so far it is looking pretty good. There is still some patches of snow on northern faces of slopes and higher elevations. We'll see what this next system brings but it not supposed to be much so I don't anticipate having to make changes to course distances and routes. Those who pre-register for the entire series will get a special gift this season. Weather forecast for Saturday is looking good so it should be a nice day to explore and get muddy!

Series Information

This is the first of 5 trail runs in the 7th Annual Be Bold, Run in the Cold Winter Trail Series presented by Ascent Runs. 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- Spring Edition. The Triple Trail Challenge includes Carson Canyons Half Marathon on April 2, 2016, Escape From Prison Hill(EFPH) Half Marathon on April 23, and the Silver State Half Marathon on May 21.

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 to at home.

Packet Pick up

Bib #'s can be picked up race morning. Once you have been assigned a bib# that # is to be used throughout the entire series so please do not discard after the run.

Weather

We'll see what mother nature brings us this year. Your guess is as good as mine!
Update 11/19 - forecast is calling for 60% chance of light rain Saturday morning with a high od 49. Perfect weather to start off a winter trail series!
