A friend in Idaho was flexing about plans to run a 5K before Thanksgiving dinner and I said, oh yeah, well in Missoula we do an EIGHT K, so whatever. And by "we" I mean you guys, haha.

Run Wild Missoula will hold their annual "8K Turkey Day" run this Thursday morning with a 9:30 a.m. start time. Important info! The location has been moved from McCormick Park to the U of M campus, due to construction.

The family friendly 3K is FREE for all ages, registration for the 8K is here. They still need volunteers too, so you can use that as a great excuse to get some fresh air before the feeding begins.
