Got Dog? Then we have a run/walk for you!

Introduced as a new Fargo Marathon event in 2016, the FurGo Dog Run, sponsored by NutriSource, was an instant success with dogs and dog owners alike! Over 400 participants took on the 1.5 mile course with a canine and everyone loved it!

Join us on Tuesday, August 25th at 6:30PM as we shoot for 500 participants (that will be something to bark about!). Complete with your doggy goody bag, finisher’s shirt, finisher’s medal, and your dog’s very own finisher’s medal, you will not want to miss this! We expect this to fill up, so register early!
