During this time of COVID-19, there are inherent risks involved in participating in in-person races and events. While we are taking reasonable precautions, based on state and local guidelines, to provide a safe environment, we cannot guarantee the safety of all involved.  If you are concerned about your personal safety, we would suggest that you forego our in-person activities and instead consider our virtual options.

      Questions about the Run for the Luck of It?  Email Ashley, ashleyc@runwildmissoula.org

      The COVID-19 pandemic has been an undeniable challenge to produce in-person race events.  Here in Missoula, the ability to conduct in-person events is based on the criteria established under the Missoula City County Health Orders. 

      One of the challenges of leadership is having to make difficult and/or unpopular decisions for the greater good.  To that end, Run Wild Missoula will not produce races in the current environment unless we are completely comfortable that we have done our best to protect the safety and mitigated the risk for our members, race participants, and greater Missoula community.  Further, we will not promote or support events by other organizations that have not demonstrated that they are following basic safety and risk management guidelines
