Governor’s Cup Testimonials

Lauren L. – Missoula, MT
I absolutely love the Governor’s Cup half marathon! The city of Helena is so gorgeous!

Eric V. – San Francisco, CA
Helena and its Governor’s Cup should be proud! As a first time visitor from San Francisco and as a first time runner in the Governor’s Cup, I was impressed with both the city and this high-caliber event. I’ve run in other road races, and the Governor’s Cup ranks among the best. Great route, great scenery, amazing volunteers, beautiful finish line, and well-organized from beginning to end. “You done good.” I’ll be back to run it again.

Best race in Montana…something for everyone! Extremely well organized and rich in Montana tradition. The marathon and half marathon course have to be the most scenic in Montana!

Overall very happy with the Governor’s Cup. Very organized and lots of volunteers. Aid stations well placed and well-staffed/stocked. My first half marathon and I was comfortable the whole time.

Chuck K. – Ulm, MT
We loved everything about it. The course was amazing, the volunteers were wonderful, and the whole event was top notch!!! It was great to see all of the people in front of their houses cheering on all the runners.

Kathy M. & Owen S. – Missoula, MT
Every Montanan should enjoy this at least once while they live in MT. It’s a great feeling to run/walk along the streets of our capital city, and past the capitol itself, as a way to start the summer.

Chelsea L. – Billings, MT
The course was beautiful, the race was very well organized and all the volunteers and spectators were fabulous! It’s easy to see that Helena welcomes and celebrates the participants! Two thumbs up!!!! Thank you!

Heather L. – Helena, MT
Whether it’s here in Helena at the Governor’s Cup or somewhere else, the runners and other people participating are the same. They’re happy and they’re healthy or making an effort to be healthy. I think the Governor’s Cup was a great place to start.

MT Gov Cup is my favorite race of the year! It’s impeccably organized with a vibrant, exciting, fun atmosphere including live music, cowbells, and cheering spectators to get you across the finish line.
