Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Fargo Marathon organizers are unveiling a new route for the annual race.

This is the third time in the marathon's 9-year history that it has been re-routed due to flooding.

The new route skips going into Moorhead, and uses 10th street to get under the train tracks.

The original route uses second street, on which this city has now built a levee.

Mark Knutson- Fargo Marathon Organizer: "We still wanted to incorporate as many parts of the city as we could. We wanted to keep as much of the original route intact as possible without compromising the city's flood effort."

The marathon is May 16th through 18th.
