Runners Warming Up For Big Marathon

Even though the Bison are in Frisco, the Fargodome was full Saturday.

Runners skipped the cold and did laps around the stadium for an indoor marathon.

300 people registered for the second annual Fargo Marathon Indoor Kick off Run.

The marathon offers three sets of races from 5k and 10k.

Many runners use the race as training for summer Fargo Marathon, which includes everything from kids’ races to a full marathon.

“You know at twenty below, this is probably the only place I’d want to be running. It’s just fun. The Fargodome is the home for the Fargo marathon so it’s kind of a way to kick off your training,” says Fargo Marathon Executive Director Mark Knutson.

The same organizers as the indoor marathon put on the summer marathon.

Contenders are encouraged to register to reserve their spot for that race this May.
