A first class marathon. The whole community supports this event and turns out to cheer the runners on. Lots of fun for all

“Great for kids and families too.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The Marathon has a race for everyone. The kids events are before the big race. We have run the full marathon, but everyone we know that has done it has enjoyed it. It's a nice weekend activity and we've met people running from all over the world. The meal is fun time to visit with other athletes.

“Very good but needs a little tweaking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

The marathon is well run event. The Fargo dome is a great perk to the event. It provides a central location for all the events for the weekend, ample parking, plenty of bathrooms, a break from the elements, and a great place to finish the race.

The course is flat and fast. Parts of the course are great with lots of people and bands. However the course also has a lot of quirky turns and the end of the race had little crowd support.

“Flat, fast, and a bit too preachy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Well-run marathon, but please lose the prominent Bible verse on the medal and the before-race hyper-Christian prayer. Please open it more to people of other faiths (or no faith), but putting these flourishes next to others (put the verse on a choice of lanyards, or something besides the medal). While Christianity is part of the fabric of the place, it's only one piece of a diverse puzzle.

“Ran 3 Years ago....Bigger & Better Now!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Hats off to Mark Knutson and the Marathon Crew for a great 2013 Marathon...I ran the 1/2 back in 2010 and was pleasantly surprised to find that this year the 10K Participants received moisture wicking shirts and top-notch medals. This marathon has truely grown and is bigger and better. Security was present due to the Boston Marathon mishap and was nice to see - Thank You! Also like the communication you keep with your resgistrants. Keep up the EXCELLENT WORK!!! You make North Dakota PROUD!
