The non-typical Montana Marathon but ever-so Missoula event The Lard Butt 1K at Silver Park did not fail to live up to its credo as being a slog for the rest of us! One of the funnest things to be a participant in Western Montana. Just over ½ a mile- with doughnut stations every 250 meters and Beer and Mimosa’s. That’s a dream race for me. Yes, that is 1k.

Chris and I were honored to host this year's event, cheering and hooting for the racers.

Local brewer Highlander featured a special Lard Butt Lager to reward the arduous “feet” from waddling around the 1K course on a bright perfect if warm Saturday in Missoula, Montana. The Poverello Center collected food items.

Costumes were a BIG part of the action. Kids and pets were welcome. The LB1K is a fun way to burn off some energy without taking oneself too seriously. A lot of visitors from other States and some Countries were there and joined locals for an enjoyable break and oh yeah, doughnuts and beer & mimosas.

Take a look at all the fun that was had at the 2022 Missoula Lard Butt 1K.
