About The Just For The Helena Of It

Just For The Helena Of It is not your average half marathon race. As a dedicated half marathon runner, this race is the perfect blend of community support, scenic routes, and a worthy cause.

Set in the charming town of Helena, Montana, this fall event is organized by the Treasure State Runners, a local non-profit organization. These four incredible women, who are also running partners, have a mission to support their community and share their love of running. And what better way to give back than by donating the profits directly to the Friendship Center, a safe haven for those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. By participating in this race, you not only challenge yourself physically but also contribute to a cause that empowers the community to thrive in violence-free relationships.

The race itself offers three different distances: the half marathon, 10k, and 5k. While all routes showcase the natural beauty of Helena, the 5k participants are in for a treat as they embark on a course enveloped by Montana’s breathtaking big sky. For those tackling the half marathon or 10k, the routes take you on an out-and-back journey through Helena’s historic and scenic areas. Imagine running alongside picturesque buildings and landmarks while immersing yourself in the rich history of this charming town.

Though October can bring unpredictable weather in Montana, it only adds to the excitement of the race. Be prepared for anything – rain, shine, or even snow. This element of surprise only adds to the thrill of conquering a race like no other.

So lace up your running shoes and join us on October 20, 2024, for Just For The Helena Of It. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Helena, support a worthy cause, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Remember, running for a cause is not just about the race but also about leaving a positive impact on the community. Let’s run with purpose and make a difference – because running truly never felt this good!
