200 volunteers still needed for Missoula Marathon


MISSOULA, Mont. - The Missoula Marathon is just a couple weeks away and volunteers are still needed.

The marathon itself is on Sunday July 13 th , but there are races all weekend long. Kicking off on Friday night with a beer run, a 5-k on Saturday and the marathon and half marathon on Sunday.

Director of Run Wild Missoula tells us that it is a really fun weekend but it couldn't be done with the help of volunteers. They are expecting over 7,000 people that weekend and they need 1,000 volunteers. Right now they are about 200 shy.

"Everything from helping with packet pickup on Saturday to being a course marshall on Sunday. And for people out there participating in the marathon on Sunday or maybe one of the other races during the weekend, there's still lots of volunteer opportunities, so if you're running on Sunday you can volunteer on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or even Monday," said Eva Dunn-Froebig, Executive Director of Run Wild Missoula.

They could use all the help they can get for this event. Dunn-Froebig said that it will be a fun weekend for spectacles too.
