IMPORTANT - Change is Coming: In the next few weeks, Run Wild Missoula will be migrating membership from our custom built platform to the RunSignup platform. We are excited about some of the features we will be able to provide (including automatic race discounts!), and will be sure to keep you in the loop as we make the transition. We anticipate completing the process by January 31st. We need to wrap up the 2020 Mileage Club and Racemakers before we can complete the transition.

Stay Fit, Stay Active, Stay Healthy - Phase Two does not mean that social distancing is over. Social distancing has been demonstrated as the best weapon that we have at this time in fighting the spread of this virus. We must do our part to ensure the health and safety of those around us. As such, we still encourage you to follow good social distancing and hygiene practices. 
  • To the greatest extent possible, maintain at least 6-feet of separation from others
  • This does not include members of your immediate household
  • No hugs, handshakes, high fives, or elbow bumps
  • Wash your hands, or use hand sanitizer, before and after your run or walk
  • And, regularly wash your hands in between your runs and walks
  • Sneeze or cough into a tissue, handkerchief, or the inside of your elbow
  • Don’t pose together for selfies
  • If you feel any sign of sickness or illness, stay home
  • If it seems overly busy where you intended to run or walk and it’s more congested than you are comfortable with, consider finding a different course/route/trail
