Missoula Half Marathon, Missoula, MT. State #46, lifetime half #82.
Mostly flat course on paved highway with excellent traffic control. Runners are bussed to the start (no parking there) and run back into town. The event starts at 6 am, busses start at 4:15 am which makes for a long and cold wait for the start.
Fireworks shot off at start, but watch for fallout. Beautiful mountain scenery and small neighborhoods with enthusiastic community support.
The race finishes in a downtown park and finishers are quickly walked through the race exit, collect water or Coke, handed their gear bags, porta potties are nearby.
At the park are paper bags with snack items and a beer ticket is attached to your bib. Bling includes short sleeve tech shirt, medal, and nylon drawstring gear bag.
