  • Race day packet pick up and registration will be available at the Runner’s Edge (basement-- please use the alley entrance prior to store opening) from 8-9 a.m. 
    because these are chip-timed races and we like to keep our sanity, we must cut off race day registration at 9 a.m. SHARP, so plan accordingly!

Course/Race Information:

 Course map

  • Both courses are OPEN to traffic!  Race participants must always be aware of traffic and yield to cars unwilling to stop for runners.  While there will be numerous volunteers and lots of signage all over the course, runners must still be cautious at intersections!  Listen to the course marshal's instructions!
  • This race takes place in Missoula, Montana.  In March.  What does that mean to runners?  It means you never know what kind of weather we’re going to have or what the weather will decide to drop on the streets as it passes through, i.e., snow, sleet, rain, etc.  Be prepared for potentially slippery surfaces, potholes (watch for puddles!), uneven surfaces, and a couple of railroad tracks! 
  • Kids’ Dash:  We are again offering a FREE 400 meter Kids’ Dash for your lads and lassies 10 years of age and younger, at 9:15 a.m. on Sunday, March 13th.  Participants will receive a small prize.  Participants in the FREE Kids' Dash will NOT receive a Sauce Frosty neck warmer.  A parent or legal guardian may register their child online through March 11th, at 11:59pm.; in person on Saturday, March, 12th, from 12 - 4 pm or Sunday March 13th, from 8-9 a.m., at the Run Wild Missoula office (basement of Runner's Edge, 304 N. Higgins, enter through alley).  


  • Age groups and overall top finishers:  Overall and age-group finishers (3-deep) will be announced after the race and will receive a special prize.
  • Age groups are:  14 & younger, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+

Volunteers Needed!

This event would not be possible without dedicated volunteers, and we need a lot!  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jen von Sehlen.
