The race start/finish has been relocated to the motorized vehicle parking area south of the Snyder trail head.

Turn left onto the dirt road and head up to the big open area and park.
Single track and double trail located within Prison Hill Recreation Area. The 5K may extend out to be 4 miles. The 10K+ will depend on conditions. Course distances and routes are subject to change due to weather and trail conditions. Check back for updates or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
UPDATE 2/8/19: Marked the short course tonight. It will be around 3.3 miles. Parking area was a little muddy tonight from sun being out all day. I don't expect it to be muddy in the morning with the temps we are expecting. Parking area is a little rocky so bring a higher clearance vehicle if you have one. Otherwise rocks easy to maneuver around. Course was a little wet but not slick. Should be frozen in the morning with snow a bit crunchy. Traction should be good. May have a light dusting in the morning but I think it will only make traction stickier.

This is the fourth of 5 trail runs in the 10th 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. The Triple Trail Challenge includes Carson Canyons Half Marathon on April 6, 2019, Escape From Prison Hill(EFPH) Half Marathon on April 20, and the Silver State Half Marathon on May 18.
