Fargo Youth Run

Saturday June 1, 2024

Celebrating 19 Years of Youth Runners

As we prepare to celebrate 20 fantastic years of Rockin’ and Runnin’ at the 2024 Fargo Marathon, Saturday, June 1, 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. Now the Fargo Marathon Youth Run has over a thousand participants each year!

The 2024 Youth Run will be on Saturday, the same day as the marathon, half and 10k, and give kids the opportunity to run the final mile of the marathon route! 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.
