This Event Took Place Sat. Jan 11, 2014

Course Description

A mix of single & double 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! As usual with this series, the 5K will stay as close to a 5K as we can no matter what the conditions are. The 10K+ will get stretched out a little further if conditions are favorable. Re-check often for updates this week at this site, our website, Facebook or Twitter.

The student rate is reserved for those 25y/o or younger who are actively enrolled in school full time, middle school to college. Patagonia All Weather Zip Neck event shirts can be purchased separately. The last day to order a shirt will be February 19th so that they will be ready for the March Mudness run on March 4.

Appreciate your understanding on that one.

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 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.
