Mark Knutson Friday Night 5K

Join thousands of runners at Fargo’s 21st anniversary event for a Friday Night 5K on May 30th, now renamed The Mark Knutson Friday Night 5K after late Fargo Marathon founder and race director. The Mark Knutson Friday Night 5K is a massive celebration of running and all things Fargo, celebrating Mark’s legacy by making his memory a part of the race he loved so dearly.

Featuring a theme of Mark’s favorite 80’s rock music and an electric atmosphere, this is a 5K you won’t want to miss. The race kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and will have you rockin’ and runnin’ from the inside out! The event is capped at 5,000 runners and will sell out prior to registration closing, so be sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible!
