You have just under a month to prepare for this year’s Fargo Marathon. Race Director Mark Knutson says if you are running the full you should be running at least 20 miles by now. For the half, ten.

When it comes to your shoes, experts say you should definitely be running in the ones you will be using for the marathon.

Mark Knutson – Race Director: “If you are still wearing the law mowing shoes right now and you haven't bought a new pair of shoes in a few years, you should go out and get a new pair, you certainly want to start training in them right now.”

If you haven't registered for a race there is still time. The 5 K race will be open for registration through race week. All other events will close registration the second week of May.
