Courses:  All races start and finish at River Bowl East (south side of Clark Fork River, Milwaukee Trail, near the UM/Van Buren footbridge).  

Double Dip - REGISTRATION IS FULL -  A tall half marathon with 2700 ft of elevation gain.  Very challenging and always worth it! Limited to first 200 registrations.  (Note:  We will not manage a waiting list for the Double Dip.)

V-Dip -  aka The Vertical Dip.  Nothin' flat or mellow about this bad boy.  2,000' straight up to the top of Sentinel, then drop yourself 2,000' back down.  5-Mile Round Trip.  A real burner - lungs, quads and glutes - they'll all be screamin' for a break.  Limited to first 100 registrations.  (Note:  We will not manage a waiting list for the V-Dip.)

Single Dip -  Probably the toughest first mile of a 10K that you'll ever do.  After that, it ain't so bad! Best views in town! There is no participant limit on the Single Dip.

Glutton For Punishment & Ice Cream Lover:

The Super Nova will return.  What is the Supernova you ask?'s a Double-Double Dip.  That's right.  You do the course once before the actual start, then run it again as part of the official race.  (While we will ask that you check in with the race director at the start or finish of your first loop, do be aware that loop one is purely voluntary, self supported and not part of the official Pengelly Double Dip event.)  

Super Nova finishers are an elite group, with a select few having completed the challenge over the years.  John Hart and Randy Tanner were the first to achieve this enviable distinction!  Are you as tough as those guys?  If so, and you complete the Double-Double Dip, you'll receive a free Super Nova ice cream treat from Big Dipper.

Our 2017 Sponsors










The organizers of Pengelly Double, Single and V-Dips would like to thank the following for their gracious support in organizing this event: Lolo National Forest, the University of Montana, Missoula Parks and Recreation and the City of Missoula. The Pengelly Double, Single V-Dip is a Run Wild Missoula event.  This event is permitted by the Lolo National Forest, University of Montana, and Missoula Parks & Recreation.


About Dave Pengelly: The Double Dip run would have been a favorite event for Dave because it combined many of the things he adored: Mount Sentinel, where he had hiked since early childhood; strenuous outdoor activity; and an opportunity to enjoy, tease, and probably harass his beloved friends. Throughout his life Dave poured his incredible energy into enjoying the outdoors, especially the mountains and all manner of mountain sports. He loved to share those passions with his many friends, family members, and his younger brother in the Big Brothers and Sisters program. He also supported various organizations that fought to preserve his favorite wild areas. Dave died June 13, 2003, in a mountain climbing accident in the North Cascades in Washington. The speakers at his memorial service, without design, presented a combined sermon on Dave's message to them, a message reinforced by the Double Dip run: get out there and live! The race began as a fund-raiser organized by the staff of the Missoula Youth Homes. The race is now organized by Run Wild Missoula, which encourages entrants to contribute generously to Missoula Youth Homes.
