Roads, Tracks and Trails Virtual Run

On October 14th, 2020 our Montana running family lost a treasured friend and invaluable supporter. Tony Banovich, Race Director for the Missoula Marathon and Executive Director of Run Wild Missoula, was kind, generous, and encouraging of all, welcoming countless new runners over the years. He was deeply dedicated to both Missoula and Montana running communities.


In 2021 this in-person event challenged participants to run 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. We are pleased to continue this Memorial run as a virtual option 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.

“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!”
