The Fargo Marathon will continuously strive to promote a friendly and fun event dedicated to the participants, the volunteers, spectators and our chosen charities. We firmly believe that physical fitness should not be a choice, but rather, a part of life for all people of all ages.
Fargo Marathon, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to the promotion of physical fitness and mental well-being.

Since its inception, Fargo Marathon, Inc. has given over $500,000 to a variety of charitable efforts throughout the region. In addition, since 2012, the Fargo Marathon’s Shoes for Kids program has purchased over 5,000 pairs of Nike and/or Under Armour shoes and donated them to needy children in the community’s Elementary Schools.
