A spectator and crowd favorite, the Missoula Kids Marathon is a non-competitive and non-timed 1.2 mile run. It’s all about having fun and staying active all the way to the finish line! Every child is a winner and will be rewarded with an official race number, cape, goodie bag, and colorful medal–just for finishing!



OPTIONAL: Participants ages 13 and under, can log ‘miles’ all spring to complete their marathon! 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.

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)!
