The thirteenth annual Homecoming Hustle is going virtual! The Homecoming Hustle is the Grizzly Track & Field team’s fundraiser occurring every year on Homecoming weekend. In the past, the Homecoming Hustle has been a 5k road race that follows the Homecoming parade route. This year, to ensure the health and safety of Missoula, we are hosting a series of virtual challenges that will begin on Wednesday, September 23rd and end Sunday, September 27th! Entry into the series will be a $16.00 fee that includes a T-shirt and 1 raffle ticket. There will be two raffle baskets that include $75.00 Runner’s Edge gift cards, as well as Grizzly merchandise, gift cards, and coupons from local Missoula food favorites! Additional raffle tickets can be earned by completing challenges and can be purchased when signing up for the series.
The pandemic has deeply affected all University of Montana’s sports. We are relying greatly on our fundraising. We hope that you can participate in this virtual series to help support your Grizzly Track & Field team!
