2017 Air Quality Updates:

9/14/2017:  It looks like the weather predictions are holding true.  The rain has moved in; and, it appears as though snow could be heavy in the Bitterroot Mountains.  Air quality is already beginning to improve markedly; and, we fully expect that conditions will allow us to proceed with the run on Saturday. 

We will continue to closely monitor weather and air quality conditions.  Should air quality unexpectedly deteriorate, we will make announcements via the race page, email and social media.

9/13/2017:  The National Weather Service continues to predict rain (and snow above 6,000') starting tonight or tomorrow morning.  May see some heavy rain through Thursday night, then lighter rain until Saturday morning.  We remain optimistic that this weather system will clear the air enough to allow the race to proceed.  We will continue to closely monitor the conditions and provide updates here, via email and social media.

9/11/2017:  Air quality improved quite a bit over the weekend.  Even had some periods in the Good or Moderate categories.  A system is expected to arrive in the area beginning late Tuesday or Wednesday, bring much cooler temperatures and much needed moisture to our area.  
 
9/9/2017:  As you know, air quality has been very poor over the last week.  However, based on the forecast of the National Weather Service, we may very well see changed weather patterns, including precipitation, by the latter part of next week.  If we're lucky, we'll see an improvement to air quality by the weekend.
 
We'll evaluate whether or not to proceed with the race based on the guidelines of the Missoula County Health Department, Montana Department of Health & Human Services, and the Missoula Marathon event protocols.
 
If the air quality is in the Good (Green) category, we'll proceed with no restrictions.
 
If the air quality is in the Moderate (Yellow) or Unhealthy For Sensitive Groups (Orange) categories, the race will proceed; but, with these considerations:
  • Athletes with asthma should have quick-relief medicine readily available and treat as directed by their healthcare provider. All athletes with respiratory illness should monitor symptoms and reduce/cease activity if symptoms arise. At-Risk participants with history of respiratory (lung) and/or heart disease should consider withdrawing from participation.
If the conditions are Unhealthy (Red) (or worse), we will cancel the race.  Exposure to prolonged exercise in these conditions presents an increased risk of causing medical distress for participants.  This becomes more so due to the prolonged exposure that we have experienced in Western Montana over the last month or so.  We certainly want to be able to conduct the race; but, not if there is a risk to the health of our participants.

We'll continue to provide updates here, via email and social media posts.
