Great marathon. This was my 15th marathon (13th state) and by far one of the best events! Arrived in Friday morning to the Fargo airport and it was nice to see a big welcome to Fargo Marathon sign in the airport lobby with a table set up and "greeters" to help us with any questions. I must say that was a first! Expo was nice, not huge but nice size and well organized. My daughter and I ran the 5k and I was a little surprised that no water was offered on the course until the very end and then we had to hunt for it (and it was a HOT 5k!). The marathon, however, was superb and well staffed with water, blue (not the nasty yellow) powerade, GU, fruit, Popsicles (very nice!), kids with candy and juice boxes. The entire town came out for this event! It seemed it was one giant block party the entire race! Bands ranged from accordions to bagpipes to praise and worship to bluegrass pick-n-grin to oldies to square dancin people to the heavy medal you couldnt understand and even a little Jimmy Buffet and Elvis! You name it and they had it! Great race! Just please next time, get better singers for the anthems.
