Heart Throb 5K




Run Wild Missoula has decided to cancel the Heart Throb 5K, scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 9th.  We have come to this decision based on the current forecast – race start temps are expected to be hovering around zero (0) degrees with the wind chill factor around -20 to -25 degrees with blowing snow. This decision is not only to keep participants safe, but also the volunteers who help make our events possible.  Thank you for understanding our decision and for your continued support of the running and walking community in Missoula.  If you have any questions about this decision, you can email Ashley ( or call the Run Wild Missoula office: 406-544-7073

Love your heart?  Love your sweetie?  Love to run in red outfits?  If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then you need to be at the Heart Throb 5K on February 9th!

Beat the winter doldrums and get your heart beating with a fun, mid-winter 5K!

Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S.?  In fact, one in every 4 deaths is the result of heart disease.  Regular exercise is a great way to develop a healthy heart.  So, do your heart some good and come out for this fun 5K event!

Show your support for National Heart Month and be eligible to win a prize.  Wear anything red - a small accessory or a full head to toe red outfit - and you could win a prize for best red outfit!  Don't forget, nothing says "I love you" like doing a 5K with your sweetie as a lead up to Valentine's Day.  Remember, couples that run together, stay together!

This will be a great day to love yourself, love your partner, and love your heart!
