A spectator and crowd favorite, the Missoula Kids Marathon is a non-competitive and non-timed 1.2 mile run to cap off their 26.2 journey. Participants ages 13 and under, will log ‘miles’  all spring to complete their marathon! It’s all about having fun and staying active all the way to the finish line on June 25, 2022!


Participants can become marathon finishers by completing a 25-mile training program prior to race day and then they can run, walk or jog the 1.2-mile course on race day.


Every child is a winner and will be rewarded with an official race number, cape, goodie bag, and colorful medal–just for finishing!


HOW TO LOG YOUR MILES: Download and print the Kids Marathon Log.  To earn miles, you can walk, swim, roll, hike, and of course, run!  Some ideas:  participating schools will have running clubs to help you log miles; if you are playing a sport, check off miles for any time you walk, run or swim in your sport; join Missoula Youth Track Club in the spring; walk or run in local races throughout the spring and early summer!  Mileage logs are to help get you motivated (you don’t have to turn them in)!
