Run for Missoula, Summer 2021

08/16/2021

 

The Mission of Run Wild Missoula is to promote and support running and walking for people of all ages and abilities.  Our continuation of Run for Missoula Virtual Race Series will provide an incentive for you to keep training, a reason to hold yourself accountable, and a reason to #LaceEmUp and get out the door.

One of our Core Values is to give back to the community in meaningful ways. To that end, a portion of the proceeds from this series will be distributed to a variety of local nonprofits and community partners.  Hence - Run for Missoula.  In addition, you'll be able to make optional donations to any of our partners to make an even bigger impact.  (See below for a full list of events and our partners.)

We encourage you to take part and Run for Yourself while you Run for Missoula.

The Run for Missoula Virtual Race Series is presented by Run Wild Missoula.
