With a membership of more than 1,600 runners and walkers, we host 15 annual races each year, multiple training classes, group runs and a variety of social and educational events.
The Missoula Marathon is one of Missoula’s premier events and has enjoyed incredible community support. The Missoula Marathon has regularly been named as one of America’s Best Races by the likes of Runner’s World, The BibRave 100, and RaceRaves.
