The Fargo Marathon is an annual road running marathon in Fargo, North Dakota, first held in 2005. It begins and ends inside the Fargodome, and also runs through Moorhead, Minnesota, Fargo's twin city. The event also hosts a half marathon, 10K, and 5K. Marathon finish times can be used to qualify for the Boston Marathon. The event is sponsored by Sanford Health.

History[edit]

The inaugural Fargo Marathon took place on May 14, 2005.[2][3]

In 2010, Runner's World named it the marathon with the best value.[4][3]

The 2020 in-person edition of the race was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, with all registrants given the option of running the race virtually, transferring their entry to 2021, or obtaining a full refund.[5][6]

Similarly, the 2021 edition of the race was postponed to September 25, 2021 due to the pandemic.[7][8]

The marathon, half marathon, and 10K all start and finish inside the Fargodome.[11][12]

The marathon course also crosses over the Red River into Minnesota and back, spending about 6 mi (10 km) in Moorhead, Fargo's twin city.[11]
