Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Some of the Fargo marathon's youngest runners got in one of their final training runs or at least a training walk.

100 students from Horizon Middle School hit the sidewalks around school. Many taking part in the 5k wore their marathon shirts.

Today's walk was about celebrating the marathon and all it brings to our community. And about celebrating students staying healthy.

7th grader, Taylor Holt, says, "yeah, it just helps kids get active and it's just a fun thing to do."

Marathon events start a week from tomorrow. The Youth Runs are Thursday the 17th. The 5-k will be on Friday. The 10-k, half and full marathons are all on Saturday morning.
