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.
