Thanks to all of our teams and sponsors who have worked hard to raise dollars for student scholarships over the last 8 years.

We raised over $250,000 since the inception of the event for student scholarships and had a BLAST while doing it!

Redefining the old “scavenger hunt” format as a clever and edgy fundraising event, The Great Race for Education combines trivia and intellectual knowledge with cutthroat competitive challenges. Each team comprised of four people compete for prizes by traveling around Downtown Idaho Falls to pit wit, physical strength and speed against the other teams.

But the hard work starts months before when each team participates in their own fundraisers to raise money for student scholarships. In 2016, we raised over $40,000 for local students and we are proud to build partnerships with others in a “race” to change lives.

One of the best parts? While the teams are jetting around town on foot, their Team Owners are living-it-up at home base competing in their own games to win cool prizes! After the Race is over, the after-party begins with a live deejay and a dinner catered by Stockman’s Restaurant.

Want to make sure that your team makes the cut? Sign up today! Our last Great Race in 2016 had 28 teams of four and over 200 team owners in attendance. The goal for 2017 is 35 teams, help us change lives and raise dollars for our scholarship program.

Hosted by Snake River Landing and sponsored by Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC), Mountain View Hospital, Idaho Central Credit Union, Progrexion, East Idaho News, Rich Broadcasting, Black Daggers Parachute Demonstration Team, Casual Custom, DJ ANDx, Coke, Sam’s Club and Hunter Monuments.
