The Missoula Marathon is a perfect blend of rural charm with big-city race management. In reading through the THOUSANDS of nominations that came in, community was consistently at the core of what runners love about the Missoula Marathon. Local runners wrote in about how this event has changed their community, inspiring thousands to become active and making all runners feel like champions.
"A perfect blend of rural charm with big-city race management."
Things to look forward to if you are visiting: “The spectators and townsfolk love that this event is in their town, and show their appreciation with numerous volunteers, neighbors turning on run-through sprinklers, a piano player in tux and tails at mile 16, etc. etc.” It’s not just the community that makes the on-course experience amazing. Missoula also offers 360-degree panoramic view of the mountains during sunrise and an exciting finish through downtown Missoula. All of these elements add up to a perfect recipe for a bucket list race.
The love and passion that runners had for the Missoula Marathon during the nomination and voting process absolutely blew us away. So it’s no surprise that, after being named Best Marathon by Runner’s World back in 2010, Missoula is back on top and was voted the best Marathon in the America for The BibRave 100!
