Missoula Marathon Beer Run

Come shake your legs out Friday night with a relaxed 3-mile route hosted by Run Wild Missoula!


This legendary 3.1 mile social run around Missoula is free and will start and end at Caras Park Pavilion, in beautiful downtown Missoula, and will conclude with  a party in Caras Park with live entertainment and a free beer for all finishers over 21, compliments of Big Sky Brewing Company.  Extra beer and wine will also be available for purchase. Please feel free to converse with any of our specially clad Beer Run Guides along the course regarding questions about Missoula or the Missoula Marathon weekend.


Don’t be afraid to join us.  This is not a beer mile — you don’t have to “chug” a beer midway through, nor is it a race.  It’s a nice, social run and walk where you can have a beer at the end, or not.  So, please come, join the party and meet some of your fellow runners and walkers in a more casual setting!


This  event is part of Missoula Marathon’s Big 3 Challenge – to sign up for the Challenge, just check the participation box on your registration form, and then finish the Beer Run on Friday, Tony Banovich 5K on Saturday and the Missoula Marathon or Half Marathon on Sunday.  (Remember, you must still register for both the 5K and Marathon or Half Marathon to be included as a Big 3 Challenge participant.)


But, you do not need to be signed up for the Challenge to participate in Friday’s beer run – everyone is welcome!! Packet pick up and the Runner Expo will also be held during the beer run at Caras Park Pavilion on Friday evening from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM

“Great pre race expo and fun 5K beer run. Well organized from expo to post race. Buses to start line prompt and starting area was well organized. Course was beautiful and only one mild hill at mile 14. GREAT spectator support throughout. Small town experience with very friendly people.”
