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.
