We are proud that the marathon has such a positive effect on the local community here in Western Montana and are happy to run a Missoula Marathon rafting deal for participants, volunteers, and their families to have some good old fashion Montana fun while in the Northwest.
Run Wild Missoula hosts this very special #1 marathon in America and their mission is to support Missoula’s runners and walkers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. They offer a full slate of yearly races, weekly training groups and everything in between. If you want to get fit, compete, or meet new folks, join them and get moving.
Run Wild Missoula and the Missoula Marathon for more than a decade have partnered with Youth Homes as they make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children in Western Montana. Each year the Run 4 Kids Team raises funds to ensure kids in care with Youth Homes have the help, care and support they need to heal and become healthy. Youth Homes offers many benefits to members of the Run 4 Kids team who agree to a fundraising commitment, including free registration for the Marathon, Half Marathon or 5k.
The Missoula Marathon is the brainchild of a group of local, dedicated members of Run Wild Missoula who want to share the area’s beauty and Missoula’s unique feel with runners from all over. The Missoula Marathon is one of our community’s most beloved and supported events. The Missoula Marathon has been named as the Best Marathon In The U.S. on several occasions – in 2010 by the readers of Runner’s World Magazine and in 2017 and 2018 by The BibRave 100. Runner’s World has also named the Missoula Marathon as a Top Marathon For Back-Of-The-Packers (2017) and a Top 10 Bucket List Marathon (2018, 2019 & 2020).

Adventure Missoula is the original outfitter of whitewater rafting through the famed Alberton Gorge. Rafting is considered the #1 thing to do while in Missoula and our raft shop is located right at the river put in (39 Juniper Lane, Alberton MT 59820) 30 minutes from Missoula on the Clark Fork River with private parking so our customers experience one shuttle back to our parking lot post trip. Rafting the Alberton Gorge section on the Clark Fork River is considered to be the best family friendly whitewater rafting in the state and world-class due to diverse scenery and beautiful rapids.
Choose from the following options:
All trips include: Life Jackets, wet suits if needed for comfort, splash jackets, water shoes, guide, boat, paddles, shuttle back to your vehicle at our raft shop on the Clark Fork River, group transportation from Missoula (arrange in advance), and private parking. Full days include locally sourced lunch featuring fresh garden grown produce grown on site. Shop is 30 min West of Missoula, Montana or 2 hour drive East from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Trips run April-November, weather permitting. Please arrive 30 minutes before departure for check in. Clark Fork River trips run roughly 2-3 hours on the water without lunch and 4-5 hours with lunch and an additional sandy beach stop to swim during mid summer weather. Water flow, traffic at the take out or put in, and paddling affect timing.
Boats: We use outfitter grade NRS small sport boats that hold 6-8ppl. This provides our guides and customers quick maneuverability and a splashier and more intimate experience with nature and the river.
If you are headed to Coeur d’Alene, ID and Spokane, WA, our raft shop is on the way and you can enjoy the stop 30 minutes out of Missoula to go rafting and then head on to Idaho. We also have a sister company in North Idaho called Coeur d’Alene Adventures located there for activities, etc. Check out our suggested itineraries there!
