Since 1972, the YMCA Riverbank Run has been a favorite springtime tradition for Missoulians! Join us as we wind through Missoula Midtown, all while raising money and awareness for life-saving YMCA programs and services.

***NOTE*** Due to bridge construction, our 2022 in-person event will be held in Midtown with all races starting and ending at the YMCA. Virtual race options are also available.

The YMCA Riverbank Run is a family-friendly event that is open to all ages and abilities. Choose from the 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, or run all three events in our signature event, the Trifecta (10.321 miles). Strollers and wheelchairs welcome! No pets, please.

Proceeds benefit the Missoula YMCA's financial assistance program. This program ensures that everyone can participate in Y programs and services, regardless of ability to pay. Click here to learn more about our financial assistance program.
