This three lap run will be held at Linda Vista golf course Friday evening, December 16th at 6:30. Don’t worry, with plenty of holiday lights, music, and luminarias to light your path you won’t get lost.

It’s time for the 2nd Annual Runner’s Edge Scavenger Hunt! Join us Thursday, October 27th for this free Halloween themed event.Bring your running shoes, headlamp, and friends and be ready to hit the streets of Missoula in search of treasure.

If you’re looking for a post-marathon running event, but aren’t ready to hop back in a race then look no further! Come join us for a fun, laid back, Christmas event! Wait, what? That’s right – our first ever Runner’s Edge Christmas in July fun run!
What is this you may ask? Christmas in July will be a non-competitive 5k-ish run combined with a white elephant gift exchange. This is a free event, but we do ask that you bring a $5- $10 wrapped gift as an “entry fee.” At various points in the run you will have the opportunity to exchange your wrapped gift for another, or keep running because you like your gift so much.
Saucony is contributing gifts as well so if you exchange your gifts correctly you may end up with a free pair of shoes or another great prize!
Christmas in July will be Monday, July 25th at 6:30pm at the Runners Edge. We hope to see you there in your best non-Christmas spirit!
Please contact Forrest at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
