Fargo Youth Run
Thursday May 30, 2024
Celebrating 19 Years of Youth RunnersAs we prepare to celebrate 20 fantastic years of Rockin’ and Runnin’ at the 2024 Fargo Marathon, Thursday, May 30, we also celebrate our youth runners who are celebrating 19 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 Youth Run in 2016, and we had over 2,800 kids who took part in the Fargo Marathon Youth Run! The 2024 Youth Run will offer both 1/2 mile and 1-mile distances featuring the thrills and excitement of TNT Kid’s Fitness & Gymnastics who help prepare the kids with fun music, stretches, and warm ups to get them ready to run! The race is open to all children 12 and under. Parents/Guardians are welcome to run alongside their children or push them in a stroller, if necessary. The different age groups will start in waves so congestion is kept to a minimum. Safety is our first priority! All kids will finish inside a secured, fenced-in area.
DAYS TO RACE
