Class Begins: Saturday, March 13th and is 16 weeks long (ending June 27th aka the Missoula Half Marathon!)

Class Meets: As we closely monitor COVID-19 and the variant strains in the US, RWM will be taking a cautious approach to in-person training. This class will begin as a virtual class, with accountability communications via email.  As we move later into the spring, we plan to provide in-person, small group opportunities (pandemic permitting).

There are inherent risks involved in participating in in-person training classes, race, and events. While we are doing our best to provide a safe environment, we cannot guarantee the safety of all involved. If you are concerned about your personal safety, we would suggest that you forego our in-person activities and consider our virtual options. 

COVID-19 Precautions - What we are doing for in-person classes, if/when they occur:

  • If you have been vaccinated, we ask that you still uphold our COVID-19 guidelines with mask wearing and social distancing at all times
  • Classes are open to Run Wild Missoula members only
  • Masks/face coverings, regardless of vaccine status:
    • Mask/face coverings will be required in indoor environments
    • Mask/face coverings will be required in outdoor environments pre and post run
    • Mask/face coverings are not required when actually running and/or walking
  • If members choose to wear a mask/face covering when running or walking, please support them in their choice
  • Please go to the bathroom before class. There will be no available bathrooms
  • Sanitation products will be made available if a class meets inside
  • Social Distancing is highly encouraged 
It's no secret that our classes will look different this year as we navigate our way through these challenges, so we ask that you follow all the rules set forward and understand that we are trying our best to mitigate the risks of transmission.

 Class Schedule - March 13th through Race Week (16 weeks):

  • Wednesday- We will provide Wednesday workouts via email to do virtually

  • Saturday- Suggested routes and distances will be provided to do virtually

  • Comprehensive Training Program to complete the Half Marathon distance
