Escape From Prison Hill

Silver Saddle Ranch

Carson City, NV 1/2 Marathon, 10K, 5K

This Event Took Place Sat. Apr 22, 2017

New Changes on the Horizon!!!

In 2018, we are going to change some things up a bit. First, and foremost, we are lowering our 5k price to $30 and 10k price to $40. Second, we are going to have all distances finish the same way by coming down the sandy hill and directly returning to Silver Saddle Ranch! This means a slight change in the 10k course and a slightly bigger change in the 5k course. More on the course changes in the coming months! Last, we anticipate keeping the new half marathon course but will impose firm cut-offs at specific locations.

EFPH Trail Races

This half marathon offers all of the winding single track, scenic vistas and 2800' of elevation gain, all packed into a challenging 13 miles. There is a strict 2-hr cutoff at the Snyder Aid station (at 7 miles).

The 10K might be one of the more difficult 10K races with a challenging 900' climb right from the start, and the same descent at the end, when your legs are tired! There is an overall gain 1600' over the 10K so bring your low gear! There is a 1-hour cutoff at the first aid station. If you don't make it to the Boy Scouts within 1 hour, you will be turned around.

The 5K course will be slightly revamped and features over 700' of elevation to get significant trail and hill time beginners can really use. A good climb, steep, soft, sandy descent, and single track to give a new trail runner some confidence!

For all three races, be sure to spot the iconic dead truck as you work your way up Dead Truck Canyon!
