Hike up Baldy on the first day of summer

Camp Rainbow Gold fundraiser

     Ketchum’s HardCore Training Center has teamed up with The Elephant's Perch of Ketchum to host the first annual Baldy Buddy Hike to benefit Camp Rainbow Gold.

     Organizer Bill Nurge has scheduled the event for Saturday, June 21 at 9:30 a.m. starting from River Run Lodge and ascending Baldy to Roundhouse restaurant. He said the hike measures less than three miles, but is challenging.

     “Everyone can do this two-person team event to celebrate the first day of summer. You just need a partner of the opposite sex and both of you hike up to the Roundhouse together or separately,” said Nurge.

      There will be overall prizes for the fastest combined time for coed, family and married teams. On June 21, Sun Valley Resort’s gondola is expected to be running for the first time this summer.

     Register for $20 per team at The Elephants Perch or HardCore Training Center in Ketchum. You can also sign up at River Run on race day at 8:30 a.m. Visit or call 720-1829.
