This was a delightful race! Incredibly scenic for the first 17 or 18 miles, then you run through Missoula, which was pretty too. There was really only one hill to speak of, around the half marathon mark, but the rest of the race was super flat. The weather was warm, but the air was dry, so being too hot wasn’t an issue until very late in the race, plus there were plenty of aid stations throughout the course. There weren’t a ton of spectators, but those who did come out were all in! Very enthusiastic with signs, playing instruments (piano, banjo, guitar, drums, bagpipes, saxophone, etc), and there were a ton of town residents who left their sprinklers on and pointed towards the street for the runners. The sprinkler water was ice cold, too! I was a little concerned about having to ride a shuttle to the start of the race, but it was very quick, efficient, and well-run, much like the entire event. At this race, the pace group leaders tended to run together, side by side. At other races, I’ve seen one pace group leader run towards the front of the pack (running slightly ahead of goal), and the other bringing up the pack at right on target. I prefer this to the pace group leaders running together, but that is only my preference and certainly didn’t make or break the race for me. If Montana wasn’t so terribly far away, I’d definitely run this one again and recommend to anyone! Montanans are so friendly and helpful- this was a great experience!
