Are you heading to Helena, Montana for the Governor’s Cup or are you already signed up?

Check out Visit Helena for places to stay, things to do and places to go while you’re here.

The website features information about lodging, campgrounds, food and drink, events, attractions, tours, car rentals, shopping, other services and travel information.

As you’ll find out, Helena is not only home to the Governor’s Cup, but also amazing outdoor opportunities, a plethora of historical sites and more. The Montana’s capital city is located centrally with easy access to and from larger cities like Missoula, Bozeman and Great Falls – all less than a 2-hour drive away. The city also is located almost directly between Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. If you travel to Helena, be sure to pack your mountain bike to stretch out those legs after the race with a low-impact ride on some of the best single-track trails Montana and the entire region has to offer. The trails are perfect for running, too.

All of our races – from the oldest Montana marathon to the new Kids Marathon and Fun Run – take advantage of Helena’s historic and scenic offerings. In fact, the marathon starts in the ghost town of Marysville, and takes runners on a journey through forests
