The Friday Night 5K Run/Walk sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North
Dakota and Discovery Benefits has become the premier 5K in the region, boasting over 8,000 participants
in 2013 and over 9,000 in 2012!
Now... for the 10th Running of this 5K, it is time for the 5K to also go
"BACK TO THE BRIDGE" just like in 2005! But the REALLY cool part about the
5K is that this race will get to cover TWO BRIDGES!
Our course for the 5K will be starting on the 1st Avenue North, just outside the
Fargo Civic Center and go directly east into Moorhead via the 1st Avenue Bridge.
From there, it will wind down 3rd Street in Moorhead and up to the Main Avenue
Bridge (Veteran's Memorial Bridge). All 5K runners and walkers will get to
cross this bridge and go back into Fargo. Once you're back into Fargo,
it's a quick trip down 7th Street and up the famous 8th Street.
Now the ABSOLUTE BEST PART... Your Friday Night 5K will finish
in ISLAND PARK! Then... it's a Party in the Park with a FREE JOHNNY HOLM
BAND CONCERT FOR ALL! Island Park is one of the original landmarks of
Fargo... and it will be full of music and fun on Friday Night!
This race will be capped at 10,000 people……the Johnny Holm
Band sponsored by Bobcat and the Friday Night 5K…..WOW!
