Baldy Buddy Hike Climbs to Roundhouse Saturday

Raising money for Camp Rainbow Gold, the fifth annual Baldy Buddy Hike is set for Saturday, June 23 on the service road from the bottom of River Run to Roundhouse—a distance of 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) over 2,000 vertical feet. And you get a free gondola ride down the hill afterward. Money raised will go to Camp Rainbow Gold and Because You Can (for adults diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis). The untimed event for individuals and groups starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at River Run Lodge. A “hot and spicy” team race (coed, family, married) begins at 9:15 a.m. Participants are eligible for raffle prizes. An awards ceremony is Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Roundhouse.

Pre-register at The Elephant’s Perch or HardCore Training Center in Ketchum for $20 per hiker ($40 team), with kids 12-and-under free. There is limited day-of-race registration for $30 hiker, $60 team starting at 8 a.m. at River Run Lodge. Families can consist, for example, of father/daughter, brother/sister or mother/son.
