Remembering Tony Banovich
The running community is a bit smaller with the loss of Tony Banovich. If you missed some of the articles about Tony, the Missoulian article can be found here; the KPAX story can be found here.

Our friends at BibRave also released a podcast re-airing some of their conversations with Tony, and kick off the episode with their own memories of Tony over the years. Click here for more info and to download.

This past Saturday (10/17), a private wake was held in Plains where Tony resided with his wife, Erin. The public was welcome to join via Zoom. If you were unable to attend or would like to pay your respects again, a recording of the wake can be found here.

In lieu of flowers, Tony's family has requested donations be made to Run Wild Missoula in his honor. Click Here to Donate.
