Sweathouse Half Marathon

Saturday, May 09, 2020


March 30:  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and based on the guidelines of the CDC and local and state health officials, we will not be able to conduct the 2020 Sweathouse Half Marathon in its traditional large group event format.  After carefully considering options for the 2020 Sweathouse Half Marathon, we have decided to move forward with a virtual option for all participants.  As runners ourselves, we understand the disappointment this will cause to our participants, as well as the impact this has on our sponsors.

All currently registered participants in the Sweathouse Half Marathon will automatically be eligible to complete the virtual run option at no additional cost.  Click Here for the updated race page.

Thank you to the entire Missoula running and walking community for your continued support during this time.  We will be in touch regularly over the coming weeks and months via email and social media with updates regarding all Run Wild Missoula events.

Questions?  Email RWM's Director of Operations, Ashley Cossairt

March 18: Registration for this event has been suspended until further notice.  Additional updates will be posted here as more information becomes available.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will be following the CDC's guidelines for large group events; and, the recommendations of the Missoula City-County Health Department.  For more information, click here for the CDC's website; or click here for the City-County Health website.

Course Information:  There will be three aid stations on the course - miles 4, 7, and 10.5.  Porta potties will be available at the race start/finish area, as well as the half way point/aid station at mile 7.  Post race refreshments will be at the race finish.

Sweathouse Half 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.  Aid stations and the start/finish area 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.

Time Limit:  3 hours 30 minutes (16 minutes per mile)
The course will close at 12:00 PM.

Virtual Half Marathon:  Want to participate in the Sweathouse Half Marathon without the added pressure of a time limit?  Watch to be part of the event, but have a conflict on May 11th?  Consider participating in the Virtual Sweathouse Half Marathon!

Questions?  Please email Race Director, Paul Rosen

Volunteer information coming soon!

The Sweathouse Half Marathon is named in recognition of Sweathouse Creek - a prominent tributary of the Bitterroot River - which runs along the north side of Victor.  Salish sweat lodges were known to occupy the areas around the creek.  Victor is named for Chief Plenty of Horses (named Victor by the Jesuit missionaries) the Salish chief from 1842 - 1870.

As outlined in the race waiver & acknowledgement, entry fees are non-transferable and non-deferrable.  To view the RWM race cancellation policy, click here.

Per Run Wild Missoula event policies, dogs are not allowed to participate in this event with the exception of ADA Service Animals.  Service animals must be on non-retractable, 6 foot or less leash.

Thank You to Our Sponsors!
