Missoula Kids Marathon

The Missoula Kids Marathon has changed their run from Sunday, July 11th, which is the same day as the Missoula Marathon, to Saturday, July 10th, the day of the Missoula Marathon Runner’s Expo. The change was made in order to better accommodate families who would like to participate. “Parents who run the Missoula Marathon or Half Marathon can have a difficult time making sure their children can complete the Kids Marathon when they’re all running on the same day,” explained Co-Race Director Kathy Devlin. “We are trying to make it easier for the whole family to be involved in this event.”

The start and finish of the Missoula Kids Marathon will be at Caras Park in order to facilitate the drop off and pick up of runners. The race will begin at 11:00 am with pre-race stretching and music with Paul Reneau.

Registration forms and logs will be available for pick-up in March at area schools, the Missoula YMCA, Currents, PEAK Health and Wellness, and The Runner’s Edge. They are also available online at missoulamarathon.org.

Kids can start logging miles on April 1st.

The Missoula Kids Marathon is a Run Wild Missoula event. Run Wild Missoula is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. For more information go to www.missoulamarathon.org.

Run, Have Fun, Be Healthy
