Run Wild Missoula’s Mission is to promote and support running and walking for people of all ages and abilities. In the time of COVID, it has become a challenge to provide training, racing, and social opportunities in a safe format. As many runners and walkers have found, Virtual Events help fill that void. Our 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 lace ‘em up 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 race series will be distributed to a variety of local nonprofits and community partners. Hence - Run for Missoula. In addition, you will be able to make optional donations to any of our partners to make an even bigger impact.

Run for Missoula will consist of 4 unique challenges to keep you moving and inspired over the next few months.

The Four Virtual Challenges are:

· River City Ramble - August 2020 - Beneficiary: Missoula Downtown Foundation

· Wicked Wander - October 2020 - Beneficiary: University of Montana Physical Therapy Student Association

· Autumn Amble - November 2020 - Beneficiary: Missoula Food Bank & Community Center

· Snowy Stride - December 2020 - Beneficiary: United Way of Missoula County

Registration for Run for Missoula will open at 8:00 AM MST on Thursday, July 23rd. Registration is $15 per event or $50 for the Four Pack for Missoula (support all four beneficiaries by pre-registering for all four events and receive a $10 discount!)
