Running Start to Labor Day Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Sometimes the simplicity of just being home is taken for granted, but these local Helenans knew just what to do with their long weekend. Many strolled fuller avenue to support the local markets, others took to the streets running...

 Owner of the Famous Big Dipper Ice Cream and sponsor of the event, Anna Doran  says "This is our third annual big dipper half marathon, and 6 km race, we are doing it every Labor Day weekend.  Its especially nice for the people who are staying in town in the weekend, and the proceeds we divide between two Cross Country teams in town, Helena Capitol and  Helena High."

Governor Steve Bullock took part in the event, and of course enjoying the free ice cream scoop that runners get after completing the race.  If that's not motivation, I don't know what is!  Lastly, in the spirit of Labor Day weekend, and celebration of "Our Fruits and Labor," ABC/Fox Montana had to ask, "What was your first job."
