2013 Full Marathon Winner

It was a record-breaking morning at the 2013 Missoula Marathon.

Jason Delaney from Polson was the winner of the 2013 Missoula Marathon. Delaney set a course record, coming across the finish line just before 8:30 a.m.

Dr. Elizabeth Paddock was the female winner of the Full Marathon. She crossed the finish line at 9:04 a.m.

Kath Hardcastle was the female winner of the Half Marathon. The male winner of the Half Marathon was Jim Walmsley of Great Falls.

The 26 mile Full Marathon began at 6:00 a.m. in Frenchtown.

Security has increased this year in light of what happened several months ago at the Boston Marathon. Also, participation in the Missoula Marathon saw a big increase from previous years.

Our reporters at the finish line report that there was a huge crowd of supporters cheering as the runners came across the finish line at the Higgins Avenue Bridge in downtown Missoula.
