Course Information:

  • 7 Mile Course Map
  • 5K Course Map
  • Both courses are OPEN to traffic!  Race participants must always be aware of traffic and yield to cars unwilling to stop for runners.  While there will be numerous volunteers and lots of signage all over the course, runners must still be cautious at intersections!  Listen to the course monitor's instruction!
  • This race takes place in Missoula, MT.  In March.  What does that mean to runners?  It means you never know what kind of weather we're going to have or what the weather will decide to drop on the streets as it passes through (i.e., snow sleet, rain, etc.).  Be prepared for potentially slippery surfaces, potholes (watch for puddles!), uneven surfaces, and loose sand and gravel!

Run for the Luck of It! is a Cupless Event!  In order to cut down on waste, we are working on moving all of our races to cupless events; with the exception of the Missoula Marathon.  The aid station in the 7 mile will not have disposable cups.  You will be required to carry your own HydraPak Speed Cup, a hand-held water bottle, or hydration pack  during the event.  Plenty of water and sports drink will be available from which you can fill your cup or hydration device.

What does this mean for you?  If you would like to take advantage of water, recovery drinks, or any other fluids we may have in the start/finish area, please plan on bringing a personal cup/water bottle/hydration device to use.

Please be aware that Run Wild Missoula still has a large inventory of single use paper cups and other single use products that we are continuing to work through - don't be caught off guard if those products occasionally show up at events. Thank you for understanding.

Awards: To celebrate Pi Day (3.14), all winners will receive an apple pie from Black Cat Bake Shop!
