Half Marathon

The Mini Marathon will start in the Civic Center and exit north along 4th St. to 4th Ave. N. It will cross over to the bike path along 2nd St. N, then proceed south along the bike path and under 1st Ave. bridge, NP Ave. bridge, and Main Ave. bridge! Then you continue south through Lindenwood Park on Roger Maris Drive. A nice loop through the park will bring you to the footbridge in Lindenwood Park where you’ll cross over into Moorhead’s Gooseberry Park! Making your way north in Moorhead through some great neighborhoods, you’ll eventually get back to the bike path on the Minnesota side of the Red River, which will lead you to the great paths behind Hjemkomst Park! You’ll experience great scenery with the Red River and the trees lining this beautiful path! You will eventually get to the Oak Grove footbridge and take that into Oak Grove Park. Here the team from First International Bank & Trust will great you with their awesome Aid Station. A nice run through the park and around the school will bring you to a loop through Treefoil Park. Be ready for more great scenery with lots of trees, colors, and squirrels! The last mile will get you to the city bike path, just south of Oak Grove High School, and you’ll start to the music from the Civic Center as it brings you in with a final kick!

The Fargo Mini 10K, sponsored by Edith Sanford Breast Center, and will span both North Dakota and Minnesota. The course is the same as the half marathon route until you hit the floating bridge between Fargo and Moorhead (east side of the dike wall). 10K runners and walkers will take this bridge into Moorhead, then soak up the Minnesota paved trails of Hjemkomst Park before going back to the Fargo side of the Red River via the Oak Grove footbridge.

This course zips through Oak Grove Park, crosses the Red River into Minnesota at the Oak Grove footbridge until it hits the turnaround point, then make your way back across the bridge into North Dakota to finish right where you started. A scenic fall route will make this 3.1 miles enjoyable all the way through!
