This is the first of 3 trail runs in the 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. Be sure to check our website, Ultrasignup and our social media presence on Instagram & Facebook the week leading up to the run for updates. 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 Escape From Prison Hill(EFPH) Half Marathon on April 6, 2024; Carson Canyons Super K Trail Runs 6K/12K/22K/30K on April 20, 2024; and the Silver State Half Marathon on May 18, 2024.
What, no awards. Just the sweet satisfaction that you got up on a dark and cold morning and got some good miles in with some good friends.
Bib #'s can be picked up race morning. Once a bib# is assigned to you that will be your bib# through the entire series.Please check in before every run to confirm your presence, bib# and distance running. You may change distance from 5K to 10K and vice versa race morning but you must notify event management during check in.
Dogs: Forest Service is requesting no dogs on course due to the sheep grazing for fuel reduction. Dogs are OK around the start/finish area, just not out on the courses.
We'll see what mother nature brings us this year. Your guess is as good as mine!
