Parking is available in our event parking lot in Sun Valley, as well as in downtown Ketchum. Both are a short walk/ride from the start line. We highly recommend riding to the Festival Meadows event start line and not trying to drive. 

To access the parking lot on Dollar Road in Sun Valley, you must enter from Saddle Road. You can not enter from Sun Valley Road prior to the race start. Take a look at the parking maps to see where you can park on event day.
