The hub of the festival will be located inside Castle Rocks where most of the attractions will take place with the City of Rocks only 4 miles away. With the location of the festival being no more than a 3.5 hour drive from Boise, ID and Salt Lake City, UT, this is a convenient event for friends and families to gather for some climbing and trail running adventures.
In this year’s line-up of pro-athletes—Paul Robinson, Jonathan Siegrist, Beau Stuart, Rob Pizem, Cheyne Lempe, Ben Rueck, Buddy Jones, Julie Anderson, and Conrad Piper-ruth--will be conducting workshops and presentations that will both educate and entertain those that attend.
