About This Activity

The Madison River Run will be in its 20th year in 2015. For many years, it was a local fun run that generally attracted 50 to 60 runners from Madison County and the rest of Southwest Montana. It is still a local fun run and it still attracts runners from Southwest Montana, but this is just the beginning.

The Greater Yellowstone Adventure Series has partnered with Willies Distillery, a new small batch distillery in Ennis, for this event. Willies Distillery is one of the newest businesses in Ennis. It is owned and operated by Willie and Robin Blazer and through a process that can only be called magical they take Montana grains and turn them into world class spirits. In fact, the company mission is to make world class spirits for world class individuals. This they do.

The Madison River Run coincides with Willies Distillery’s annual spring Pig Roast. It is generally on the last weekend in May. Here’s a chance to do a 5K, take part in a pig roast, and taste some of Montana’s finest spirits at Willies Distillery in downtown Ennis. This is a family friendly event as is the race. Strollers, walkers, kids, and all are completely welcome. After the race, the festivities at Willies Distillery take over. All in all, it’s a fantastic way to spend a Saturday in Southwest Montana.
