Celebrate Missoula's urban forest with Run Wild Missoula and Missoula Parks & Recreation at the 29th annual Run for the Trees on Saturday, April 17, 2021!

This year, there will be an in-person 10K option and a virtual 5K option.

This race takes place in Missoula, MT.  In April.  What does that mean to runners?  It means you never know what kind of weather we're going to have or what the weather will decide to drop on the streets as it passes through (i.e. sleet, rain, etc.).  Be prepared for potentially slippery surfaces, potholes (watch for puddles!), uneven surfaces, and loose sand and gravel!

To participate in the in-person 10K Run for the Trees you must read and follow the guidelines and protocols.  These protocols have been established to keep our runners, staff, volunteers, partners, and community safe by preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  These protocols have been developed in coordination with the Missoula City County Health Department.
For the safety of all participants, staff, and volunteers, if you do not comply with these guidelines, you will be asked the leave the event and will be removed from any results listing.

During this time of COVID-19, there are inherent risks involved in participating in in-person races and events. While we are taking reasonable precautions, based on state and local guidelines, to provide a safe environment, we cannot guarantee the safety of all involved.  If you are concerned about your personal safety, we would suggest that you forego the in-person 10K race and instead consider the virtual 5K option.

If you choose to participate in the virtual 5K event, we ask that you choose a route that does not conflict with the 10K route taking place on Saturday, April 17th.
