Carson City Escape from Prison Hill trail races return April 23

Tahoe Mountain Milers is bringing the Escape from Prison Hill Half Marathon and 10K and 5K trail races back to Carson City on Saturday, April 23.

The half marathon is a challenging trail run with views of the Sierra Nevada, valleys, and the Nevada State Prison. The 10K packs the same views and less challenging terrain in a shorter distance.

New this year, race organizers are introducing a 5K for those who want a taste of trail running, but aren’t ready for the 10K challenge.

Men’s and women’s overall winners receive an award. All half marathon finishers receive a medal. All participants receive a pair of buffs. There are also random prize drawings during the race. Racers can check the board when they finish to see if they won a prize.

Post- race breakfast burritos and fruit will be provided by La Enchilada. More information and sign-up links are at tahoemtnmilers.org/efph.html.
