The event is FREE and open to the public.

“Finding Traction” presents the inspirational story of ultra runner Nikki Kimball and her quest to become the fastest person in history to run America’s oldest hiking trail, the 273 mile Long Trail.  The documentary asks what drives her to attempt such an incredible feat, and follows Nikki’s journey from its beginning-training and racing in the Rocky Mountains – to her actual record attempt through Vermont’s beautiful but brutal Green Mountains.

Our newest event, the Striped Pig Wine Runs, are being held this June in the heart of downtown Missoula along the banks of the Clark Fork river.

If you’re a runner, it’s pretty safe to say you love to run (okay, well, maybe not all of the time but you know what we mean). ?  But we also know runners love to dabble in some adult beverages from time to time. If you can’t pass up a good glass of Pinot Gris or some exceptional Merlot, then be sure to join us for this festive and fun summer event!

There will be a kids grape juice fun run, 5k run/walk and 10k run. The festivities take place on June 12th, Silver Park, starting at 4:30pm.

All participants will receive a Striped Pig Wine Run wine glass and complimentary wine from our friends and race sponsor, Missoula Wine Merchants.

Online registration is now open. Check it out!
