Beer Run at Kettlehouse to Support Run Wild Missoula

Run Wild Missoula's next beer run takes place on Wednesday, June 27, at 6:00 p.m. and it's a special one.  Not only is that my birthday, but it's the yearly Kettlehouse U-Nite fundraiser in support of Run Wild Missoula.  

For many years, Kettlehouse Brewing Co. has been giving back to the community by hosting a different non-profit organization every Wednesday night.  Fifty cents of every pint sold is donated to that organization.

Last year Run Wild Missoula's members, friends and the totally unsuspecting ventured out to set a record for the number of pints sold for a U-Nite session.  I believe the total came to about 450 pints.  Since then many other community groups have tried to knock Run Wild off its lofty perch.  No word on whether they were successful, but Wednesday is your chance to move the mark further out. 

For the runners, you know the routine.  Meet at Kettlehouse North (313 N. 1st St. W., Missoula)  at 6:00 p.m. for a five mile run at the pace of your choosing.  I'll add the map here once it's posted.  Members of the Marathon Training Group may be meeting earlier since many need to run further. 

For the non-runners, show up anyway and support a great cause.  The preponderance of technical clothing and faint smell of hard-earned sweat may just tempt you into taking it up.

Here's the map for the run.  Looks like some nice riverfront running for a warm June evening.


  1. Happy Birthday! Looking forward to seeing you and other RWM members tomorrow night.

  2. Thanks Eva! It will be another great celebration of RWM.
