2024 20th Anniversary Fargo Marathon mobile view

Celebrate 20 Years of Running at the Essentia Health Fargo Marathon!

America’s Best Small Town race is back and bigger than ever for its 20th Anniversary! We’re bringing that sweet midwestern charm for a week-long celebration of running May 28 through June 1, 2024 – and there’s really nothing small about it. Because when we say celebration, we mean it! In honor of late Fargo Marathon founder Mark Knutson and his dream to make the 20th anniversary a landmark event, this year’s race will be as legendary as he was—with live bands and a town-wide cheering section that’ll keep you moving and grooving!
