  Click to go to the web site for the Escape From Prison Hill Trail Half Marathon and 10K in Carson City, Nevada

  The Escape from Prison Hill Half-Marathon is a challenging and fun event in that the course offers the feel of performing in a trail ultra-marathon without the added distance. The course offers exceptional views of the Carson River Valley and the Carson Spur of the eastern Sierra Nevada.

The 10K course follows the 1/2 marathon route around North Loop, then brings runners back down the iconic Dead Truck Canyon to the finish.

Escaping from Prison Hill is a daunting task, but there will 3 "ultra" style aid stations and one with minimal aid to help your escape.

Aid stations and approx. mileage:

1. Saddle (Mile 2.5): water only
2. Snyder (Mile 7): full aid / 2 hour cut off
3. On Top (mile 9): full aid
4. Mexican Ditch (Mile 11): full aid


*** NO DOGS ALLOWED IN THE RACE. You and your pet will not be allowed to run, and it's not fair to the dog to wait in the car.***

From Reno/North, take Hwy 395/I580 south to the Fairview exit and turn left.
From the south: Take Highway 395 to Fairview Street. Turn right.
When you come to the roundabout turn right. Then take your next right on to Carson River Road after the roundabout. Carson River Road will curve around to the east and the entrance to Silver Saddle Ranch will be on your right. We will have volunteers at the road so you don't miss it.

If at all possible we would really appreciate people carpooling. Otherwise, if parking gets tight, please park only where our great volunteers tell you. The BLM was very clear that they do not want to see people pulling off into the sagebrush to park their cars. So please help us out by avoiding this. Thank you for your cooperation.
