To enter the Big 3 Challenge all you have to do is register for the Missoula 5K and either the Missoula Half or Marathon, AND attend the Friday Beer Run, AND check the Big 3 Challenge box on the registration form. We’ll track your participation in all three and you can pick up your Big 3 Challenge Reward in Caras Park after Sunday’s races!

“Absolutely loved it! Amazing experience from start to finish. The Race officials, the volunteers, the community support all combined made this a very memorable milestone for me. Easily understandable why Missoula Marathon has been voted the best! The Hill about halfway was a RUNNERS GIFT, made me feel like I worked for it. Hit the WALL around mile 22, but by that time I was in Missoula and the crowd kept me moving. Cannot wait to do it again!”
