Fast, Fun & Friendly!
As we prepare to celebrate 13 years of Rockin’ and Runnin’ in the 2017 Scheels Fargo Marathon, we also celebrate our YOUTH RUNNERS who are also celebrating 13 years with us! In 2005, about 100 kids lined up at the bike path along the Red River on a Friday night to kick off the very first event of the inaugural Fargo Marathon. Fast forward to our last Youth Run held in 2016, and over 2,800 kids took part in the Essentia Health / Otter Tail Corporation Fargo Marathon Youth Run! WOW!!
The 2017 Youth Run will feature two different distances of ½ Mile and 1 Mile and again will feature the thrills and excitement of TNT fitness - who help prepare the kids with fun music, stretches & warms ups - and gets them all ready to run!
The race is open to ALL children 12 and under. Parents/Guardians ARE welcome to run alongside their children or to push them in a stroller, if necessary.
The different age groups will start in waves, so congestion is kept to a minimum and safety is our first priority!
All kids will finish inside a secured, fenced-in area, and parents/guardians will need to present a matching race bib when picking up their child(ren).
