Remembering Mark Knutson
Mark, simply put, was not just the Race Director of the Fargo Marathon, but its very essence. His warm and genuine nature endeared him to all who had the privilege of meeting him during his races, and his kindness, drive, and passion were evident to everyone he encountered. He poured his heart and soul into the things he loved—his family, friends, and his events.
At this time, we kindly ask for your patience and support. We will provide updates on how we plan to honor Mark’s extraordinary life and legacy at a later date. In the meantime, we encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the remarkable individual that Mark was and the countless ways he inspired us all.
Finally, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Mark’s family and friends. We ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. In light of this enormous loss, the Knutson family kindly requests that donations be made to Shoes for Kids in Mark’s memory, ensuring the continuation of his remarkable legacy and dedication to a cause that meant so much to him.
Let us come together as a community, united by our shared memories and the impact that Mark Knutson has left on our lives.
