Fargo Marathon drawing big numbers

Email News Alerts

Online registrations for the Fargo Marathon closed at 11:59 Thursday night and to the surprise of executive director Mark Knutson, the numbers are on par with last year’s record crowd.


More than 21,000 will have entered, despite all of the weather-related hurdles in the last several months.

“I think we’ve found that running outside just isn’t that hard,” Knutson said. “Everybody is like, how do you do that when it’s 10 below?’ It’s really not that bad.”
