News Update 12/11/13

Well this is a winter trail series which means we are bound to have some snow and rugged conditions. This is one of those times and this is why we put on the series. I just went out today and there are some sections of trail that are pretty packed down and some that are not. I will try and keep the 5K on the sections that are packed down. This does not mean that the 5K course will not be slippery! The 10K plus course will be on the plus side and will travel over sections of trail where the snow is not packed down. In fact, I was making first tracks today on certain sections. If you have traction devices for your shoes you may want to use them. If you are concerned about your ability to sustain sure footing you may also use hiking or ski poles. The weather is looking good for this coming Saturday with temps in the mid 40's. So bring your shorts and sunscreen, it's gonna be a heat wave! We look forward to having some fun in the snow.

Series Information

This is the second of 5 trail runs in the 5th Annual Be Bold, Run in the Cold Winter Trail Series presented by Ascent Runs. 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. 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 Escape From Prison Hill Half Marathon and 10K to be held on April 19, 2014.
