Last year, thanks to all our sponsors and attendees, we were able to donate over $27,000 to Utah Public Lands Alliance, Utah, 4 Wheel Drive Association, and Share Trails/Blue Ribbon Coalition. These groups work tirelessly for to keep our trails open and available to our sport.
The event central venue is the Washington County Fairgrounds Complex. All trails (30 total) are located within a 2 hours drive from the fairgrounds. The majority of the trails are within the Sand Mountain Special Recreation Management Area, located just to the south of the Sand Hollow State Park, within 5 miles of the fairgrounds. All trails are day trips, returning to the complex each day. Price per trail is $40.
There are many items to be raffled off and a few to be auctioned. All proceeds will be donated to land use with the intent of keeping trails open.

Okay so you didn't make it to the Winter 4x4 Jamboree this year. Hopefully this will help you decide for next years event. You'll get to meet a lot of really nice people and do what you like to do. Even if you don't want something really challenging they have trails for your ability and some great fun after the runs. Try to make it next year, it's for a good cause too!
