About The Fargo Marathon Weekend

The Fargo Marathon Weekend Half Marathon is an awesome experience for runners of all levels. Taking place on 18 May 2023, this race offers something special for everyone.

The course starts in downtown Fargo and follows a scenic route around the city that takes you through some of the most iconic sections of town. The flat terrain makes it perfect for beginner runners, while experienced racers can challenge themselves to break their personal bests. Along the way you’ll have stunning views of North Dakota’s beautiful landscape and catch glimpses of Lake Ashtabula as well as other local attractions like the historic Hjemkomst Center.

May in Fargo tends to be mild with temperatures usually ranging between 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit, so it’s ideal running weather. You won’t be too hot or cold during your run which will help keep your energy levels up throughout the race. There are also plenty of water stations along the route so you can stay hydrated during your run.

Crowd support is always great at this event and there are lots of people cheering you on from start to finish line – friends, family members, spectators etc… It really helps give you motivation when things get tough towards the end! There’s also music playing at various points along the route which creates a fun atmosphere and keeps morale high amongst participants – plus there’s always food trucks nearby if any one needs a boost!
Finally, every participant receives a medal at completion which serves as a nice reminder that your hard work paid off!

Overall I would highly recommend anyone thinking about taking part in this half marathon next year – it really has something special that sets it apart from other events I’ve taken part in over my years running!
