Run Wild Missoula acknowledges that we are in the homelands of the Salish and Kalispel people. Today, we offer our respect for their history and culture, for their ancient and continuing presence in this landscape, and for the path they have shown us in caring for this place for the generations to come.

"I joined RWM only a year ago when a girlfriend encouraged me to join her in the Beginning Runner Class that RWM hosts. The running community has been a godsend for me and has helped me though a really tough time personally. Thanks to my friend that got me started and thanks to RWM. I love my running buddies --- all new friends and I love the change that has taken place in my life."
