Located at Galena Park, Galena Fest is the ultimate combination of challenging athletic events and festivities. Key components of the Festival include The Bloody Rose mountain bike climb to Relay Peak and The Wicked Thorn 7.25 mile trail running race. These competitive races offer strenuous routes through the Mt. Rose corridor along trails to finish lines at Relay Peak overlooking Lake Tahoe and the main visitor center. Participants and non participants alike are welcome to attend the festival. Festivities include live music, beer tents, food, Kid's Art in the Park and more.
Proceeds from Galena Fest 2012 were used to contribute to new trail construction and support many youth programs such as Camp WeChMe.
