About Tony Banovich

On October 14th, 2020 our Montana running family lost a treasured friend and invaluable supporter. Tony Banovich, Race Director for the Missoula Marathon and Executive Director of Run Wild Missoula, was kind, generous, and encouraging of all, welcoming countless new runners over the years. He was deeply dedicated to both Missoula and Montana running communities.

It is in his honor and aligned with his spirit, we bring this 5K to the streets of Missoula.
