Run Wild Missoula

Run Wild Missoula's Mission & Values


Run Wild Missoula promotes and supports running and walking for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.



1.  Maintaining a commitment to integrity, professionalism, and excellence.

2.  Creating a community of runners and walkers that:

  • Encourages inclusion and acceptance.
  • Promotes a fit, active, and healthy lifestyle for members and the broader community.
  • Provides multiple opportunities to safely participate, volunteer, train, learn, and race.
  • Offers opportunities for participation regardless of financial means.

3. Giving back to the community in meaningful ways.

4. Supporting local vendors, businesses (especially event sponsors), and the economy.


This mission and these core values guide the decisions we make on our mix of races, use of club resources; member benefits, amenities, and community donations; and how we support our sport.

"I was thinking about moving away last summer but the running club in the town where I was going to move doesn't begin to compare-and that was a big factor in my decision to stay here."
