Voted upon by participants in some 400 Marathons held in the USA in 2009, Runners World award the Missoula Marathon Best Overall Marathon for 2009. Missoula is not up there in the name recognition like Boston or New York City, but what they do have is scenery and local charm. Runners love the start time temps in the low 50’s and a course that takes you through the forest, past the Clark Fork River, Majestic Mountains in the backdrop, and end in the heart of a small University town.
Missoulians love outdoor recreation and this just is another great event held in the Missoula valley. As you run the course you will be cheered on by local spectators holding signs, playing upbeat music, or even getting out the garden hose to give you a cool misting as you run past. The race ends in the Historic downtown with a celebration of food, folks, and fun.
