Welcome to the Idyllwild 5k & 10k Race

Photos for 2017 5k, 10k, and Kids Race events

Almost 200 race photos from the course and start line now available! You can plug in your bib number as a search term, but we recommend that you instead browse them all, because if a bib number isn't viewable in a photo, you could be up there but not identified according to bib number.

Come enjoy a unique race in the beautiful mountain village of Idyllwild!  
June 9, 2018, come to the mountains and take in the fresh air, spring flowers, and forest views as you run or walk our fun and challenging course, which wanders the streets and county park of Idyllwild, where there's always a nice view of the forested mountains.
Dog-Friendly Event!
After the races, explore all that our town has to offer — art galleries, boutiques, gourmet restaurants, coffee shops, parks, and more!  
If you still have energy after the run, Idyllwild is surrounded by some of the best hiking trails and rock climbing in the U.S., and miles of mountain bike terrain.  Or, you can choose to recover while fishing at one of the nearby lakes.
There is a variety of accommodations available, from camping to upscale lodging. However you choose to spend your race weekend this June, we know you will enjoy the picturesque course and the historic mountain village of Idyllwild!
Make a special weekend by joining us for a picturesque run or walk through scenic courses in the mountain village of Idyllwild. (See Map)
