Celebrate Earth Day with 6th Annual Superfun(d) 10k, 5k, or 1 Mile Fun Run

By HILLARY OGG

This time of year is one of my favorites for getting my run on.  The air is clean and new, the sun is shining more often, it’s getting lighter in the mornings (when I usually make time to run!) and races are starting to pop up everywhere on my calendar!

One of those upcoming races is Run Wild Missoula’s 6th annual Superfun(d) 10K, 5K, or 1 mile fun run, which is happening on Saturday April 19th.  This run is very cool because it was started six years ago by folks who wanted to celebrate Earth Day, the removal of the Milltown Dam, the rerouting of the river and the removal of toxic chemicals in the area.  Hello, awesome-reasons-to-organize-a-race!   This run is one of the only races I know that takes place in Bonner, MT – kinda nice to get out of town without having to go too far!
