UPDATE – Alaska Runner Shatters Record at Missoula Marathon [YouTube]

UPDATE - 9:00 a.m. Sunday, July 13

Matt Adams, a runner from Alaska, running in the Missoula Marathon for the first time, has set a new course record, in addition to a new state record. Race Director Anders Brooker relayed the information to KGVO News.

"One exciting this happened today," Brooker said. "Our men's marathon winner, the top finisher, broke the all-time Montana record, so he ran the fastest marathon ever on the soil of Montana."

Adams finished the race in two hours and twenty minutes, shattering the old record by almost six full minutes.

Brooker said participation numbers for the eighth annual event has broken all records, as well.

"We're at right around 4,200 for the half marathon, about 1,600 for the full marathon," he said. "We had 1,000 for the 5k race on Saturday, along with about 500 for the kids yesterday. Anyone who's thinking about doing it next year, hopefully you witnessed it this year and saw all the fun and energy here at the finish line. Right now, downtown Missoula is just electric with people."

The sun was barely up on Sunday morning before 4,200 enthusiastic runners and walkers squeezed through the starting gate on Blue Mountain Road for a 6 a.m. start of the Missoula half-marathon.
