Roads, Tracks and Trails Virtual Run

Last year the Montana running community came together and ran or walk 4.35 miles – the average daily distance of Tony’s 1,731 day run streak – while raising funds for the Tony Banovich Memorial Fund, furthering Tony’s legacy of supporting running and walking throughout Missoula and Montana. You can view pictures from the 2021 event here.
RWM is pleased to continue this Memorial run as a virtual option and fundraiser to participants in December 2022.


The original course included a little roads, tracks, and trails in and around Playfair Park. You are welcome to run the route designated in 2021 or choose your own adventure to celebrate Tony’s life and legacy on the 4.35 mile route that suits you.


The virtual event will continue to raise funds for the Tony Banovich Memorial Fund.

Tony Banovich was a passionate coach and advocate for all abilities of running, nevertheless, he strongly believed that all high school levels created impact for students. He saw high school running as the launching pad to lifelong runners.
It is in his honor and with his spirit in mind that through the Tony Banovich Memorial Fund, Run Wild Missoula is offering high school XC scholarships for gear and races. In 2022, 34 scholarships were available for local high school runners. We’d like to keep this scholarship program running and expanding to include more youth each year!
Our goal is to raise $2,000!! Please consider donating even if you do not participate in the virtual run.

“I joined RWM to kick off a milestone year for myself and to do something I have never done... Run! The training group, camaraderie, and support of the members has exceeded my expectation. RWM and its members have encouraged me to push forward and helped me fulfill goals of a healthier lifestyle. I really enjoy my new found running friends and community!”
