I cannot believe I am writing this – but I am getting to run the Missoula Half Marathon in June 2021! Y’all this has been a dream race for me since I learned about it several years ago. I have heard nothing but stellar things about the Missoula Marathon and all of the activities surrounding the event. Here are some of the things I am very excited about:
- The race schwag – while it varies based upon race distance, my half marathon gear includes a tech tee, custom designed medal, virtual race bag, free race photos, and a free beer at the finish line!
- The race management – From what I hear, the people behind the scenes make this race amazing. Over and over, I continue to hear about the way this company performs in terms of making the race a great experience for the runners that travel from all over to run here. There is a reason why this race has been “named as the Best Marathon In The U.S. on several occasions – in 2010 by the readers of Runner’s World Magazine and in 2017 and 2018 by The BibRave 100. Runner’s World has also named the Missoula Marathon as a Top Marathon For Back-Of-The-Packers (2017) and a Top 10 Bucket List Marathon (2018 and 2019).”
- The food and brews – Fresh local food is what’s for dinner in Missoula. Check out the Eating Local page here. The area is also known for it’s amazing brews from one of 11 mirco-breweries that call Missoula “home”.
- The course and the great outdoors – Missoula is rated in the top 25 best cities for active people -fishing, biking, hiking, access to national parks and more awaits in this beautiful place! I plan on exploring the area and taking in all the sites and sounds while I am there. And let’s not forget the race course itself. Check out some of the most beautiful scenery you get with your race registration fee (borrowed from my friend Juan Arrieta, who raced there in 2019).
