Night of the Griz is a nighttime 5K suitable for all ages and abilities. Runners and walkers are welcome! The run won’t be timed, but it will be electrified! Participants are encouraged to creatively illuminate themselves for the journey.
Friends and families can run as a team or individually through the beautiful streets of downtown Missoula, along the Clark Fork River and through University of Montana’s majestic campus. The course loops back through downtown and finishes in Caras Park. A series of glow zones will energize runners along the course.
Afterward, participants can rock out while a dazzling light show and DJ stoke the party vibe. Beer, wine, and soft drinks will be available and Missoula’s yummiest food carts will be on hand to serve the crowd.
The run will start as soon as it’s dark, around 8:30.
