Group Runs

Looking for other members to run with or a designated spot to meet up each week?  Run Wild Missoula offers several group run/workout opportunities!  Run Wild Missoula Group Runs are free for Run Wild Missoula members.  Each group run is geared towards all members – from beginner to advanced.  You can choose to run with others or head out on your own.  Below is a listing of all the group runs, run-walk-runs and walks.

Unless otherwise noted, all runs will start and finish at Run Wild Missoula (basement of Runner’s Edge, 304 N. Higgins).

Tuesday Track is a great way to get your speed workout in (no matter your speed!) each week and take advantage of workouts led by Coach Courtney Babcock, a former Olympic athlete. Workouts change location and focus depending on the time of year.  Click here for an explanation of different locations and specific dates, or click here for a write up on Tuesday Track.

Run Wild Missoula Rules of the Run
1. Stick to the designated route. We will tell you what the route is, but you are responsible for following it. In most instances, we will not have someone leading the way. Draw a map or write down directions if you need to.

3. No dogs please.

4. Do not run more than two abreast, especially on busy roads, sidewalks or multi-use trails. Yield to vehicles on the road. They are bigger than you.
5. Be mindful of your language and conversation content during group runs given that we may have some young people joining us.
6. We do not want to leave anyone behind. If you plan to finish your run in a place other than the designated route please tell someone. If you drop out of a run, please contact (or have someone contact) the run leader so we are not out looking for you.
