Upcoming Races & Activities
Virtual Snow Joke Half Marathon: The 42nd annual Snow Joke Half Marathon is happening this weekend! The Snow Joke has traditionally been an in-person half marathon, but it has transitioned to a virtual event for 2021 to keep everyone active while staying socially distanced. Even though this event won't be in person, you still get to run 13.1 blazing fast, freezing cold miles. Registration will end on February 28th, 2021.

Golden Gallop: The March installment of the Run for Missoula Virtual Race Series is the Golden Gallop. This 10K run or walk starts on March 15th and ends on March 21st. Funds from this race will benefit the Meals on Wheels Program at Missoula Aging Services. This program provides homebound older adults who are unable to shop or cook for themselves a healthy meal, which empowers them to live safely and independently in their own homes. Registration will close on March 14th, 2021.

Spring Road Training Class: This class has been offered since the Missoula Marathon began and has traditionally been a training class tailored specifically for the Missoula Marathon & Half Marathon. This spring, we are excited to add additional distance options to the training class for those looking for structure in training with guidance from a coach. This is a great class to take whether you are a first-timer or repeat runner looking to successfully train for and complete an event during the Missoula Marathon weekend, or have other events to tackle on your calendar! The class starts virtually and potentially move to in-person later in the spring. Registration is open and the class starts on February 28th, 2021.
