Helena, Montana: Our home

The Governor’s Cup is proud to call Helena home. Montana’s capital city, founded in 1864 at the onset of the Montana gold rush, is nestled a few miles east of the Continental Divide. Today, Helena features a wide array of outdoor activities and historical adventures. Many hikers and bikers flock to Helena for an accessible trail system. Also nearby are the Missouri River and three lakes that offer a wide range of recreational opportunities. While you’re here for the Governor’s Cup, don’t miss out on all the other good stuff.  Read More

Montana marathon maven

In 2007, Heather Lieberg ran her first marathon at the Governor’s Cup. Less than eight years later, the Helena runner is an Olympic Trials qualifier. Her fastest time in the marathon is 2:34:08. And her Governor’s Cup record of 2:45:59 is the fastest women’s time ever posted in Montana. But she does more than run. Also a teacher and mother of three, Lieberg shows no signs of slowing. She credits the Governor’s Cup for sparking her interest in the marathon. In recognition of her continued success, we’ve updated our profile of Montana’s marathon maven. Read More
