Light the Way 5k takes place on the sidewalk paths of Fort Missoula Regional Park and a 1/2 mile of crushed gravel path. Most years the course is covered in packed snow with patches of pavement.
We strongly encourage the use of headlamps, flashlights and any other awesome, festive item you can find to illuminate your way. Please have fun with your running outfit! Wear your best (or worst!) Christmas attire for this race. We also encourage the use of traction devices on your running shoes. We may have rain, ice, snow, all three or none of the above. Be prepared for all types of weather conditions.
Light the Way 5k takes place at Fort Missoula Regional Park in Missoula, MT. Packet pickup and the start/finish line is at Bella Vista Pavilion on the south side of the soccer complex.
*Please note this race was timed but results were inaccurate. You’ll find your name in the
order you finished but no official race times are given. Thanks for understanding!
Kids Fun Run:
The free 1/2 mile Kids Fun Run will take place 15 minutes before the start of the 5k! There is no registration required for this free event, just have your child at the start line ready to run at 5:40.
Parking at Fort Missoula Regional Park is located on the South side of the park, near Bella Vista Pavilion. There is plenty of parking, but carpooling is fun and awesome!
