Run Wild Missoula

Run Wild Readers

Monthly Book Club

Run Wild Missoula is excited to introduce this new program starting in August of 2023. Run Wild Missoula members have shown their passion for walking and running in the Missoula community, but many also share a love for reading. Run Wild Readers is aimed at combining those two interests with a focus on running based novels. The book club has made a conscious effort to include books with different points-of-view while understanding the triumphs, struggles, barriers and memories of people that share the sport.

This book club meets on the first Monday of the month at 6:00 pm. Come for an hour to socialize, relax, and talk through provided discussion points on the book of the month. The titles of our picks are announced by quarters in order to provide ample amount of time for readers to pick up their book of choice and join us for the month(s) that interest them!
