RUNNERS FOR BOSTON
On Monday, April 22nd at 6:30pm, there will be a run to support the tragedy that occurred at the Boston Marathon this week. Thank you for the overwhelming response and support of this event.
THANK YOU MISSOULA – REGISTRATION FULL!
We registered over 500 people for Runners for Boston in less than 3 hours this morning at the Runners Edge. The cost of the run with t-shirt included was $20/per person with 100% of the registration going back to http://onefundboston.org/, the fund that the BAA is suggesting people donate towards. We are already over $12,500 on the first day (Sunday, April 21st). Thanks for such wonderful support to such a great cause!
STILL WANT TO PARTICIPATE?
We are now out of shirts, but we are still registering people for this event from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (Monday, April 22nd) in the basement of the Runners Edge, 304 N. Higgins Ave. Donations are welcome, but not mandatory. Please come and fill out a registration form and donate if you wish. There will be no race numbers and no timing of this event. It will be more like a group run than a race. Paper registration only. Checks and cash only. Donations made with a credit or debit card can be made directly to http://onefundboston.org/.

There will be 2-mile and 4-mile courses starting from McCormick Park at 6:30 p.m. on Monday. Participants are welcome to turn around early since it will be an out and back course. This event is open to runners, non-runners, walkers, families, kids, people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. This is more about getting the community together to show support for the victims in Boston last week.
Please do not park at the parking lot at McCormick Park. Instead, parking will be available at lot at the Parks and Recreation building at 100 Hickory St. or in the Montana Natural History Center parking lot on Hickory St. or the City Parking Commission and the lot on the north side of the river next to and west of the Orange St. bridge. Better yet, run or ride your bike to McCormick Park. Because of the short notice of this event we will have parking issues and Missoula Parks and Recreation have been understanding and supportive of the event.
Big Dipper ice cream and Big Sky beer will be at the finish area. Thanks to Big Dipper for donating ice cream and Big Sky Brewing for donating beer.
A big thanks to Mighty Fine Tees in Thompson Falls for printing the shirt so quickly. The shirts also would not have been possible without Carol Brooker, who helped Mighty Fine Tees print the shirts this weekend. Thanks Carol!
Run Wild Missoula and the Runners Edge are organizing partners and covered the cost of the shirts so more funds can be donated to One Fund Boston.
