Run Wild Missoula

Missoula Marathon Committee

The Missoula Marathon is the brainchild of a group of local, dedicated members of Run Wild Missoula who want to share the area’s beauty and Missoula’s unique feel with runners from all over.  Run Wild Missoula is a non-profit, 501(c)3 running club with the mission to promote and support running and walking for people of all ages and abilities.  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.  Come to Missoula and take part in the Last Best Race in the Last Best Place.

“This race is always incredible. The energy from staff, volunteers, runners, and the community is amazing. Race production is always spot on, no glitches. Beautiful race expo in the heart of downtown. The race course itself is great, mostly flat, and beautiful. When you get into the residential areas, many members of the community come out to cheer everyone on, it really is an incredible feeling. They offer bag check because it’s a point to point race that runs very smooth. After 5 years, I’ve never ran into any problems at this race. Oh, the medals were gorgeous as usual. Way to go Missoula Marathon.”
