Final Marathon Preps

Posted: Updated:

The 8th Fargo Marathon is now just two days away and with hours till race time the final preparations at the Fargodome are underway with events starting as early as today.

Over 2,000 participants will run the full 26.2 mile marathon with thousands others running the half, 10k, 5k, and youth run.

Marathon officials advise arriving at the dome 90-60 minutes before your scheduled start time to ensure you have enough time to get ready, check in, and start on time.

Fans watching the race or in Fargo this weekend are also advised to be patient and familiar with road closure and de-tour routes in and around the marathon course.
