“13 mile Marathon”
Review of Fargo Marathon

Reviewed May 20, 2013

Our Daughter ran in the race(13 miles). It is very well run and this year it was very humid and hot so the runners were well taken care of too.

The event was well organized except they start the marathon as the last race of the day. This causes the race to be warmer than it needs to be and slower times. They could start the race at 6:00 and avoid this issue. I will not run the marathon again unless they change the start time.

I've ran both the half marathon and the full. The full wasn't quite as "fun" but that's probably d/t the distance. For the half, I literally had so much fun with all of the music, crowds, and camaraderie with other runners that I looked up and happened to be 1 mile from the finish. The expo was filled with interesting vendors and helps build the excitement. I've heard traffic complaints, but honestly I've never ran into this. I've parked a few blocks away and walked/jogged up to the starting line. There are plenty of bathrooms, water/replenishments, & first aid spots along the course to accomodate. It's flat and fast! The weather can be tricky, but if you're a midwest native you'll be used to it!

The Fargo Dome is a perfect location to start/end the races but there is are too many people for traffic to flow. Make sure you plan for delays and parking issues. Other than that, this is a wonderful event.
