Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - News from our business tonight. We're excited to announce a new partnership between WDAY and Forum Communications, and the Fargo Marathon.

The deal sealed late this afternoon.

It's become like the Super Bowl to people in the Red River Valley and as the Fargo Marathon hits its 10 year anniversary, some big time changes.

Race director Mark Knutson announced that the marathon and WDAY-TV and Forum Communications have reached a deal to become the exclusive media sponsor of the Fargo Marathon and with more exposure, Knutson is hoping for more of the race to be shown.

Mark Knutson, Fargo Marathon Race Director: “People actually love to watch any footage they can see of the marathon whether it's the leaders or last runner finishing the marathon and it's funny, marathon running is actually a spectator sport and they can't imagine this person is running a 5 minute mile for 26 miles.”
