Run Wild Missoula is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to promote and support running and walking for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Our programs range from beginner runner training classes to advanced trail running classes. No matter what your fitness level, our goal is to keep you fit and healthy, and reap the health and social benefits that come with running and walking with other Run Wild Missoula members.


Run Wild Missoula races, training programs, and memberships are minimally fee-based to allow us to continue to fulfill our mission.  Members can attend weekly and monthly group runs, get a newsletter to stay informed about running/walking in the community, and receive discounts at local retail stores, physical therapists, massage therapists and more.

Run Wild Missoula projects, including races, training programs, seminars and trail projects, would not be possible without over 1,600 members, many whom give countless hours and energy.
