2nd Annual Missoula Marathon and Half Marathon
 
Description
 
July 12, 2009 The 2009 Missoula Marathon is the brainchild of a group of local, dedicated runners who want to share the area's beauty and Missoula's unique feel with runners from all over. In addition to the traditional 26.2-mile marathon, we offer a half-marathon and a kid's marathon. The courses are all relatively flat and fast with the marathon, half marathon and kids marathon finishing in downtown Missoula. You won't be disappointed in the course or the surroundings. We live and run in a city of about 67,001 nestled in the Rocky Mountains of western Montana. At 3,200 feet above sea level, our summers are generally warm and sunny and our evenings are cool. Missoula, known as the Garden City, is at the confluence of five valleys and is surrounded by the Rattlesnake Wilderness and the Bitterroot and Lolo National Forests. The Clark Fork River flows through downtown and lively trout wait to test the next angler's line in the nearby Bitterroot and Blackfoot rivers. Rock Creek, an internationally known trout stream, is only minutes away from downtown. The University of Montana lends the town its progressive vibe and its 13,600 students give Missoula a youthful pulse year-round. The city is home to more than 100 restaurants; here you can find something to satisfy every palate. Historic downtown provides a unique shopping experience and wealth of watering holes to quench your thirst after crossing the finish line. Missoula is also a launching point to some of the country's most breathtaking wild lands, including Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Flathead Lake and more.
