Tony Banovich Memorial Run


As many of you know, on October 14th, our running family lost a treasured friend and invaluable supporter. Tony Banovich, Race Director for the Missoula Marathon and Executive Director of Run Wild Missoula, was kind, generous, and encouraging of all, welcoming countless new runners over the years. He was also deeply dedicated to our Missoula running community, and his sudden passing left behind shoes too big for anyone to fill.

To honor Tony's legacy and ensure continued support for Run Wild Missoula, an industry coalition led by BibRave, Event Southwest, and the Louisville Running Company created The Tony Banovich Roads, Tracks, and Trails Memorial Run. This event challenges participants to run or walk 4.35 miles – the average daily distance of Tony’s 1,731 day run streak – while raising funds for Run Wild Missoula.  100% of registration dollars will go directly to support our organization and ensure that Tony's deep commitment to this running community lives on. 

Registration for The Tony Banovich Roads, Tracks, and Trails Memorial Run will be open from November 12th through December 11th. Participants will have until December 31st to complete the event. Registrants will receive a commemorative pin, donated by Ashworth Awards, embossed with the event logo.  Special thanks to AfterShokz, makers of amazing open-ear bone conduction headphones, whose presenting sponsorship will cover the costs of shipping swag to participants.
