The Missoula Marathon ran into complications with the University of Montana, Adams Center and Washington-Grizzly Stadium, which prompted us to pursue an equally fabulous location for our finish.

So picture this – finish your half or full marathon running up Orange Street, eyes fastened on Orange Street Bridge covered with a myriad of balloons, downtown Missoula and the mountains in the background, spectators lining the sidewalk clapping and cheering. As you cross the Clark Fork River and start on that gentle downhill slope towards the finish line at the north end of the bridge, you know you’ve done it. You’ve just completed the Inaugural Missoula Marathon, Half Marathon or Kids Marathon event.

You’ll be ushered right onto Front Street where food and drink and gear bags will await the athletes, then down to Caras Pavillion to recover along the river with your family and friends.

The Missoula Marathon Committee is dedicated to making sure you receive the glorious finish you deserve after having completed your race. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at
