This Event Took Place Sat. Dec 12, 2015

Update 12/11/15

Trails are in good shape with a small amount of snow coverage down low and a little more up higher in the canyon. The 5K will be a 5K and stay down low. The 10K+ will most likely be between 7-8 miles and head up into the canyon. I will be free-lancing it tomorrow morning when I start to mark the 10K+ trying to stay away from sections of trail that could be slick. Woo-hoo, gonna be a fun one! Don't forget your bib#'s. See you in the morning.

Mostly single track with some sections of fire road in Ash Canyon. Gradual ascents and descents. Snow and/or ice is always possible on this route during the winter.

Series Information

This is the second 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 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. 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.
