About 23-thousand runners participated in the various events. And thousands more lined the streets to cheer them on.

Tournament Director Mark Knutson says it was another successful year, thanks to a little help from Mother Nature.

Mark Knutson - Race Director: “You know it's ironic because earlier in the week. It was predicted for something short of a tsunami, I think, in Fargo this weekend and it ended up turning out to be probably our best weather weekend in the 7 year history of the race. It just made for a good weekend with respect to the participants but also the volunteers and the spectators out there.”
