The Missoula Marathon is coming up in less than a month, and this is my first year taking part in the race and festivities. And it’s a chance for you to be a Montana local!
It’s a great event for all ages and offers a unique way to spend time with family and friends and enjoy some of the wonderful things Montana has to offer. For example…
The Top 10 Reasons to Check Out The Missoula Marathon
1. Help a charity.
Organized by Run Wild Missoula, a non-profit, 501(c)3 running club, The Missoula Marathon supports and promotes “running and walking for people of all ages and abilities.”
2. Have fun with the entire family!
Geared for all ages, there is a full marathon and 5K for avid runners, a half-marathon (what I’ll be participating in) and a kids’ race for ages 13 and under.
3. Feel like a Montana local.
If you’ve ever wanted to see what it’s like to be a Montana native, you can interact with the locals and get a true feel for the local area with this popular event.
Whether you are a pro runner (this race is a USATF certified, and a Boston Qualifier!) or just want to enjoy a nice run and get some exercise with the entire family, this is a fun way to get a good workout!
5. Be part of one of the best marathons out there!
6. Look at beautiful scenery.
The run takes you through a scenic, Montana countryside and finishes in the historic Missoula Downtown area.
7. Meet new friends.
As one of the most popular events in the local area, it’s easy to meet new and old friends before, during and after the run!
8. Enjoy delicious food and drinks.
The event will be surrounded by all kinds of food and drinks offered by sponsors and local restaurants. It’s a great time to eat, drink and be merry!
9. Listen to great music!
Local bands will be on hand to provide music and entertainment to the participants and their families. The kids will love all of the activities focusing on them, and you can tap your feet to some great, local tunes.
Enjoy a unique, local event this summer where you can get a workout, spend time with family and friends and enjoy the beautiful, Montana countryside, too!
