Mama Bear 5k | TBA 2023

Celebrate Mother’s Day with RE Events! Bring out the whole family for a 5k dedicated to commemorating moms.  The course starts and ends in the heart of Missoula’s downtown and meanders along the river with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.  After the race, enjoy a finisher’s flower and festivities in the newly renovated Caras Park.

This year we are pairing with Mountain Home Montana, a local non-profit organization that provides support to young families. All donations will go towards diapers and other essentials.
