One of the biggest and most exciting events in the entire United States is coming to Missoula this weekend.

Of course, I'm referring to the Missoula Marathon. In the short 5-year history of the Marathon, two prestigious honors have already been bestowed upon it.

Not only was the Marathon named Montana's tourism event of the year, but Runner's World magazine named it the top marathon in America.

Since the Marathon has grown so rapidly, a number of other events other than the race itself will take place this weekend.

Earlier this week, Shande Wiest did a nice job of breaking down this weekend's itinerary. You can check it out here.

Also, Run Wild Missoula's Eva Dunn-Froebig and Torrey Holmquist were kind enough to stop by the "Curley's Coaches" show last night on our sister station, AM 930 KMPT. You can listen to last night's show by clicking here.

So if you're looking for something fun and exciting to do this weekend, the Missoula Marathon is your best bet.
