Event proceeds to benefit  Idyllwild School's Physical Education Program (K-8)

With more than 35years of presenting this race, the Idyllwild Race Committee (501c3) has donated a total of over $70,000.00 to the Idyllwild School athletic and physical education program.  This has enabled the school to purchase a scoreboard, indoor climbing wall, PE equipment, team uniforms, coaching fees, and a portable sound system.  The school has even been able to equip an entire fitness lab for students funded entirely from the proceeds of the race.  

THANK YOU to all participants that helped make this all possible.
