Course Description

A mix of single & double track trail with some technical rocky sections. This is wild horse country. If you don’t run into some wild horses, you will definitely run into some wild horse manure! As usual with this series, the 5K will stay as close to a 5K as we can no matter what the conditions are. The 10K+ will get stretched out a little further if conditions are favorable. Re-check often for updates this week at this site, our website, Facebook or Twitter.


This run is part of a series where every run is just $20, $10 for students. The student rate is reserved for those 25y/o or younger who are actively enrolled in school full time, middle school to college. Patagonia long sleeve capilene event shirts can be purchased with registration for an additional $35. The last day to register with a shirt will be December 25th so that they will be ready for this run, Wild Winter Round Up, on January 6. Shirts will not be offered with registration after that date. There is a $5 procrastination fee for all race day registrations($25, $15 for students). Same day registration is cash or card only, sorry no checks. Appreciate your understanding on that one. Minors who register race day must have a parent or guardian present to sign participant waiver and release of liability, the assumption of risk and indemnity agreement.
If you have not pre-registered through this site and plan on registering the morning of the run please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to start time so that we can get everyone entered into the timing system and not delay the start of the run. Thank you!

Series Information

This is the third of 5 trail runs in the 9th 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 within 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 the 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 7, 2018, Escape From Prison Hill(EFPH) Half Marathon on April 21, and the Silver State Half Marathon on May 19.
