MV Rounders

The Mission Valley Rounders is a loosely organized group of cyclists, runners, swimmers, triathletes, and other endurance junkies who love to “make the rounds” in our beloved Mission Valley in northwest Montana.  We collaborate for weekly workouts, organize local events, and celebrate our achievements large and small.

Below is a list of the Spring 2013 Rounders events and workout schedules.  If you find yourself in this gorgeous part of the world, please come join us.
