Each year, we proudly present the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana Governor’s Cup road races to provide a fun and festive opportunity for folks to get competitive juices flowing or to simply participate in a healthy activity.
We’re pleased to announce the 2015 Governor’s Cup was a great success as more than 3,000 participants from more than 30 states and three countries took part in June, thanks in large part to a massive volunteer effort from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana employees and many others in the community. About 400 volunteers helped participants at packet pickup, served as course guards, handed out water and greeted runners and walkers at the finish line.With some small adjustments moving forward to continue to improve the experience, we’re hoping for even bigger fun and competition in 2016!As they say, all it takes to start a fire is a little spark. That’s the thought behind the Governor’s Cup, and for more than 40 years, the road races have sparked fitness fires inside the bellies of numerous participants in the marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K, Kids Marathon and Fun Run.Dating back to the first race in 1974, the Governor’s Cup has seen more than 125,000 participants cross the finish line with another 3,000 expected to take part on June 10-11, 2016. That’s a lot of sparks! More importantly, most of those sparks have resulted in fires still burning hot.Here are a few of the highlights from 2015:
