Mount Jumbo Winter Wildlife Closure: Today is the last day to recreate responsibly on Mount Jumbo before we turn the land over to the elk for the winter. There are limited trail options that remain open throughout the year. Learn more about the closure here.

We are pleased to announce Sally Henkel as Run Wild Missoula's newest Program Coordinator! Sally became a Run Wild Missoula member in 2014, when she was just getting her feet on the ground in Montana and discovering her love for trail running. Over the years Sally has gained extensive experience in conservation and mostly recently a tech forward organization doing equity and inclusion work. This work, combined with her passion for the sport has ignited Sally’s interest in the intersection of community development and running. You can learn more about Sally in the Member Spotlight section of our monthly newsletter. Don't want to wait? Check out her full bio on our website under RWM Staff, here.
