Over 50 bands and DJ’s that will line the course! Expect tons of fun and entertainment to keep you going through those 26.2 miles!
Finish inside the Fargodome with a huge jumbotron and thousands of screaming fans! No better way to complete your marathon than by being inside the dome!

Recognized as one of the fastest half marathons in the region, the 2021 Sanford Fargo Half Marathon includes the best pieces of Fargo all wrapped up in 13.1 miles!
The race starts inside the Fargodome and then takes you through tree-lined residential streets and on to the bike path trails along the Red River. The half marathon course continues through historic 8th and 9th Streets before you hit Broadway and the awesome Fargo Theatre! After that, it’s back to the Fargodome for your indoor jumbotron celebrity finish line!
Very flat! Very fast! Very fun!
And don’t forget about the DJs and live bands along the way….at least one per mile!
