Series Information

This is the second 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 but challenging 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 1, 2023; Carson Canyons Super K Trail Runs 6K/12K/22K/30K on April 22, 2023; and the Silver State Half Marathon on May 20, 2023.
