Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus, the CDC’s recommendation of no events of 50-plus people for next two months, and the government’s rolling mandate around no public gatherings, we’ve made the decision to reschedule the Fargo Marathon, originally scheduled from May 4th-9th, to a new date of August 24th-29th. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our running community, from all of our participants to those who put on the events.
All registered runners will have two choices:
- Remain registered for the new August date. No action is required on your end if you choose this option; OR
- If the new date doesn’t fit your schedule, you can join the Fargo Marathon Virtual Run! We’ll ship all of your goodie bag items (race swag, medal, and bib) direct to your door within 2-4 weeks to the address you provide in the form. If your package is returned back to our office because of an incorrect address, we will not reship it. Other than confirming your shipping address, you don’t need to do anything further, except get out there and run your own race! Once you’ve completed your run, click here* to log in to your EnMotive account. From there, find the event on the “Upcoming Races” page, click Log Result, enter your time, and download your official finisher’s certificate!
If you don’t take any action at all by May 10th, you’ll be automatically moved to the new event week in August.
Unfortunately we’ve already put a year’s worth of time and resources into setting up the event, so no refunds will be offered. During this difficult time we appreciate your support and cooperation in this serious health emergency.
On behalf of the Fargo Marathon team, we look forward to running with you later this year, or virtually!
