Congrats Runners!

Thank you to all of the runners and volunteers who made the 45th annual Governor’s Cup, presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield, a great success. Among the highlights, we witnessed an incredible event record in the men’s half marathon by Missoula’s Mark Messmer (1:09:01), titles defended by Keely Baker (half marathon) and Sam Read (10K), a 16th victory by Nicole Murray (5K) and a ninth win by Heather Lieberg (10K). We hope to see you all back in Helena next June.

The Governor’s Cup charted a new course in 2018 with major changes to the marathon and half marathon routes, and minor changes to the 5K and 10K routes.
