Start with flat – if you don’t know Fargo-Moorhead, then let us help you out. We are located in the Red River Valley… a leftover of some crazy glacier thing a long, long time ago. Thanks to that glacier, we have a very flat terrain around here. In fact, the biggest hills you’ll find are the underpasses in downtown! So flat is Fargo and flat is Good!
Fast? Well, it kind of goes with the flat, but to be a little more specific, the Fargo Marathon course has one of the higher percentages of Boston Marathon qualifying times than most marathons! The Fargo Marathon course is designed by runners who know what is important to fellow runners!
Finally….let’s talk about friendly! The friendly people of Fargo and Moorhead are probably one of the most important pieces of the Fargo Marathon! Rockstar cheering fans, bands and DJs at every mile, and the absolute best aid station & medical teams give new meaning to “North Dakota & Minnesota Nice”.
