About This Activity

In its 4rd year, the Running Water for Helena showcases our local, primary watershed!

This race is a chance for folks to learn about the watershed in two ways: 1) running along side the creek, and, 2) touring & visiting the Water Treatment Facility and learning what the City of Helena takes into consideration while providing water to the residents.

Both distances begin at the Water Treatment Facility and travel upstream along Rimini Road to their respective turn-around points. After the races, stick around and learn about what is happening in your watershed!

Stay for LIVE MUSIC, food & drink!
