Missoula and the surrounding area offer a multitude of choices for where to rest your head, from unique bed and breakfasts to the comforts of your favorite hotel chains. The hotels on North Reserve offer quick access to the airport, I-90 and Hwy 93. Downtown hotels place visitors in the heart of Missoula and within walking distances of the University of Montana and the Clark Fork River. Broadway and Brooks Street properties boast convenient access to shopping and restaurants.

There are also a limited number of basic, dorm-style accommodations available through the University of Montana. Click HERE to see opportunities through UM’s Residence Life Office.

Our host hotel and marathon sponsor DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Missoula sits right on the banks of the Clark Fork River and is just minutes away from the shuttle bus pickup location.  Click HERE to visit their website.

“You begin on a yellow school bus in the early morning hours (4:30 a.m.) along with 50 of your new friends, on your way to be deposited 17 miles outside of Missoula. It’s all part of the experience, and believe me, it was a great experience! Everything from the running expo to the beer run, from the course and its views to the post-race environment were thoughtfully planned and well-executed! Highly recommend a trip out to Big Sky country for this race!”
