Description

The Governor's Cup is looking forward to welcoming runners to Helena for race weekend on June 11-12, 2021. Make plans now to come to Montana's capital city, enjoy one of the state's longest-running events, and do a little exploring while you're here.

We're offering both our traditional in-person events along with virtual options in the 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon. In our latest race update (March 23, 2021) we shared that we are moving forward with an in-person event, with modification. This includes only hosting the 5K, half marathon and marathon relay as in-person events. We will not have Friday evening events, and we are removing the 10K and marathon relay from our in-person race menu. 

There remains uncertainty because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we don't know what the conditions will be like in Helena on race weekend. The Governor's Cup will continue monitoring developments with the pandemic. Please CLICK HERE for more information on our race plans for COVID-19, as well as our updated cancellation policy

Established in 1974, the the Governor’s Cup caters to families, recreational runners and elite athletes looking for a great way to exercise their competitive spirit and celebrate the benefits of a health lifestyle in Helena, Montana. Staged in the picturesque backdrop of the Treasure State’s capital city and its surrounding countryside, the Governor's Cup features the widest array of events offered at a Montana running event with a marathon, marathon relay, half marathon, 10K, 5K and Fun Run. The Governor’s Cup marathon, the oldest 26.2-mile race in Montana, is a USATF certified Boston Marathon qualifier and is home to the second-fastest men’s and fastest women’s times ever posted on Montana soil – 2 hours, 20 minutes, 35 seconds by Helena’s Jim Hatcher in 1982 and 2:45:59 by Helena’s Heather Lieberg in 2013.
