Escape from Prison Hill races April 18

Nevada Appeal staff report

Runners are invited to test their mettle on a challenging trail that offers sweeping views of the Sierra, surrounding valleys and the Nevada State Prison at this year’s Escape from Prison Hill half-marathon and 10K races on Saturday, April 18.

The race is held annually at Silver Saddle Ranch on Carson River Road. The single-track trail offers vertical climbs and descents in a challenging 13.1 miles, though the 10K distance offers the same views on less challenging terrain.

Male and female overall winners of both races will receive an award, and all participants will receive a race shirt with an event logo. Random prize drawing are also given during the race, whose participants are asked to check a board organizers are going to have on hand to see if they have won a prize. Post-race food will be provided by El Charro Avitia.

Registration for the half-marathon is $45 per person in advance and $50 per person at packet pickup or at the event. The cost to participate in the 10K is $35 per person in advance and $40 per person at packet pickup or at the event.
