Run Wild Missoula offers a variety of trail running sessions designed to get you ready for a season of strong and healthy trail running. Our trail classes are geared toward everyone. We offer sessions for people brand new to trails to the experienced trail runner, and everyone in between. The Spring Sessions (all levels) will run from April 8 through May 24, 2024.
Registration for Spring Trail Sessions opens March 7, 2024 at 8:00 AM!

Run Wild Missoula is choosing not to charge for trail sessions – in doing so, the hope is that participants will pass along what they consider the session to be worth in a donation to the Five Valleys Land Trust! The donation to FVLT will aid with the development of area trails and open spaces. Thanks for helping us give back to the open spaces we are so lucky to have in our backyards!
Donations can be made here.
