Register for the 2015 Governor’s Cup – Home of the first Montana marathon!


Gov Cup marathon among 10 best bets in U.S. for Boston Qualifier

RaceRaves.com has named the Governor’s Cup as one of its 10 best bets for a Boston Marathon Qualifier. The Gov Cup is entering its 42nd year and features the oldest marathon in Montana, among its event options. The point-to-point course begins near the ghost town of Marysville above 5,000 feet elevation and descends through the mountains and rural countryside before finishing at about 4,000 feet elevation in historic downtown Helena. We don’t feature the swelling crowds and hoopla of a big city marathon, but the Gov Cup’s stunning setting and authentic Montana atmosphere are hard to beat. Read More

Helena, Montana: Learn more about our scenic, historic 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 and is gaining more and more national attention as a top destination. 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.
