Scheels Fargo Marathon
It all started on the Veteran's Memorial Bridge in 2005, and 10 years later...
we're returning! Your Fargo Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K course tour
begins at the BRIDGE and finishes on HISTORIC BROADWAY... just beyond the FARGO
THEATRE! This awesome route will bring you through the finest that our
community offers, including the historic and revitalized downtown districts,
beautiful tree-lined residential streets which take you from the turn of the 20th
Century to the 21st! And remember... bands at every mile will keep you
FAST AND FLAT defines the terrain here, but the MOST important "take home piece"
for you will be FRIENDLY! Our community proudly boasts its friendly side
as you visit our streets on your way to your personal Finish Line!
This year's full marathon and half marathon routes will take you into the
awesome neighborhoods of North and South Fargo... maybe some North vs. South
competition to see which side of the Fargo ROCKS the most!
South Fargo's 8th and 9th Streets will WOW you... you won't know which one is
better! Either way; you will know the meaning of FUN after you are done
Full Marathoners will press on to south Fargo's Rock'n River Road, while half
marathoners will turn back to start the return route to the Downtown Finish
Both groups will finish on Fargo's famous Broadway... completely lined with
people, music, fun and the world famous Fargo Theatre Finish Line... complete
with a Jumbotron Finish Line Monitor!
