Back in 2020 I made a New Years resolution, and was well on my way to finishing my first Marathon in Missoula. We all know the rest.

Not in near as good of shape, and a few stones heavier. I vowed I would finally get this done in 2023. And I’m so glad I did. Missoula lives up to the hype.

What a welcoming weekend, from arriving in town, packet pickup on Friday with the community beer run. To of course the main event on Sunday.

Easy shuttle system to the start from UM campus, with plenty of busses! No waiting around. Once arrived at the start line, plenty of portable restrooms, drop bag system, and even had coffee!

The course is great, starting out in the country, with open fields and great sunrise over the mountains.

*for a newbie, the hill section in the middle got me* the course was flat 95% of the race, but the hill is legit!*

The finish is through the local neighborhoods, shaded, with great community atmosphere and vibe. Before finishing over the bridge and through the finishing arch.

Can’t thank Missoula enough for a great first marathon.
