FARGO 5K, Relay & Half Marathon & Swanson Health Products Health - Fitness Expo On Fargo Marathon Weekend
May 20 (Including Expo) through May 22, 2010
The Fargo Marathon is best described as Flat, Fast, Friendly & Fun….emphasis on Friendly & Fun!!
In 2010, our event will fall on the weekend of May 21st – 22nd. The location for everything is the FargoDome. Here is where you will pick up packets, register, eat pasta & lefse, take in our terrific expo, listen to awesome speakers, start the race and finish the race! This is one large loop of a race, so no “point to point” event, no long bus rides. There is plenty of parking and seating for all participants and spectators.
You’ll start outside of the FargoDome, but you’ll finish inside the Dome under the Jumbotron Video Monitors….yes, it’s your chance to show thousands that YOU DID IT!
The Early Bird Packet Pick-Up and Health Expo will run from 5:00PM to 9:00PM on Thursday, May 20th at the FargoDome! The Packet Pick-up and Health Expo will re-open on Friday May 21st at 10:00AM and run until 9:00PM. Over 75 national and regional vendors will be there with the latest and greatest in running apparel, shoes, apparel and souvenirs! The pasta/ lefse feed will run in three seatings on Friday May 21st at 4:00PM, 5:30PM and 7:00PM. Our Speaker will begin run concurrently with the three seatings.
New in 2010….The Friday Night 5K Run/Walk will start at 5:55PM on University Drive, just in front of the FargoDome. This will be followed by the Youth Run Events which will start at 7:05PM.
On Marathon Day, Saturday, May 22nd, the FargoDome will open up at 6:00AM, and give you a place to stretch, warm up and stay out of the elements, if needed.
Full and Half Marathon Line-ups will start at 7:15, and the races will kick off with the wheelchairs at 7:55AM. From there, it’s your Fargo Journey….and EVERYONE will finish inside the Dome.
In 2010, we are moving the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota / Subway Restaurants 5K Fun Run/Walk to Friday Night!! It's now the Friday Night 5K Run/Walk.
The Go Far Challenge will be your opportunity to show the world your stuff on two different days. Here’s how it will work:
You may participate in the 5K Run/Walk on Friday Night. Then, on Saturday, if you complete the Half, Full Marathon or 10K, you will receive an AWESOME GO FAR CHALLENGE FINISHER’S MEDAL!!
