Diz Runs With… Anders Brooker
Today, I’m running with Anders Brooker, who is the race director for the Missoula Marathon in Missoula, Montana. The race weekend consists of a 5k, Half, Full, kid’s marathon, and beer run, so there is an event available for everyone.
While running with Anders, we obviously talked about the Missoula Marathon but that’s not the only thing we covered. Among the highlights of our run:
- A recent 50 mile run he wasn’t exactly prepared for
- Why the race is run in July
- Why the race has a participant cap
- Being named The Best Marathon in the United States by Runner’s World in 2010
- Things to do in Missoula in addition to running 26.2 miles
There are very few races that are on my list of “Races I WILL run on my pursuit of the 50 state club“, but after talking to Anders I’m pretty sure that Missoula is now on the list. Everything about this race sounds like my idea of a perfect race, from the number of runners to the rural environment to the small town feel. I look forward to taking a week or so, and really exploring a part of the country that I’ve never been to before, and running a great race as well.
