Grassroots Outdoor Alliance

Along with our online specialty shops at RockCreek.com, we provide quality outdoor gear for a host of sports including kayaking, rock climbing, camping, hiking, trail running, and adventure racing. As a leader in the outdoor industry and in the larger community, we use outdoor retail as a platform to encourage outdoor recreation and environmental stewardship and to improve access to the backcountry. Rock Creek hosts the annual StumpJump 50K Trail Race, attracting top competitors from across the nation, and is a major sponsor of the Triple Crown Bouldering Series.

As part of this mission, Rock/Creek is a proud member of the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance, a group of independent outdoor shops dedicated to the sustainability of the specialty outdoor channel and the quality of the outdoor enthusiast’s experience. We stand together to help facilitate a market for performance-oriented, revolutionary products, create a unified marketing presence for high quality, local outdoor specialists, and help protect and sustain the quality and access to the environment on a local, national and global level.
