Fargo Half Marathon
Fargo, North Dakota
Saturday, May 20, 2017

Saturday, May 20, 2017 was a good day to do the Fargo Half Marathon in Fargo, North Dakota as the temperature varied from 45 to 50 degrees with a light breeze and overcast skies which held off raining until after the event.  The course began and ended inside the Fargodome and utilized city streets which were completely closed to traffic and almost flat with a few slight up and downs.  Many volunteers and a few police controlled the numerous intersections to insure that the participants were safe and the event could go on smoothly.  There were approximately 7000 entries in the half marathon as well as 2000 in the full marathon and 5000 in the 10K.  A 5K was held on Friday and a kids run of over 2000 kids was held on Thursday.  Water/Powerade stations were located approximately every 1.5 miles and had plenty of friendly efficient volunteers as well as tables on both sides of the roads to take care of the needs of the participants.  The event is in its 13th years and this is the fourth time that I have completed the half marathon which has always been well organized and fun to do.
