It’s promising to be a beautiful day in the Flathead Valley this Saturday… perfect weather for the Great Fish Fun Run & Community Celebration! Register online at runsignup.com/great-fish-fun-run or stop by one of our in-person registration events this week. We will not offer day-of registration, so be sure to register by Friday evening!

Celebrate the 9th annual Great Fish Community Challenge and the incredible work of our nonprofit community by participating in the Great Fish Fun Run! This event features 5K and one-mile courses, yummy BBQ, a nonprofit fair, prizes, and more! 

Creativity and costumes are encouraged! Children 12 and under can participate for free. Top male and female finishers in the Great Fish 5K and Great Fish 5K – Para Athlete will receive prizes and recommend a grant to their favorite Great Fish Community Challenge participating nonprofit.

The Great Fish 5K – Para Athlete category is open to individuals with physical disabilities using mobility devices such as handcycles or push-rim wheelchairs.

This year’s 5K course is a scenic loop that will take participants along the railroad trestle path to City Beach, up Dakota Avenue to LaBrie, and back down Wisconsin Avenue to finish in the Park. The 1-mile course is the same as last year’s course… one lap around the railroad trestle path, starting and finishing in Depot Park. Click here to view the course map.
