Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fargo's famous marathon will call Island Park its home next year.
Tonight, Park Board members approved plans to host the huge event in the middle of downtown Fargo.
Each year the marathon has grown.
More than 20-thousand people are expected for next year's races.
The marathon will start on the bridge, finish on Broadway, and use Island Park as the staging area.
Dave Leker, Fargo Park District: "It was kind of cool when they moved it out to the dome but it will be cool when they move back downtown to the interior of the city. You saw it with game day. Everyone loves being downtown. The Fargo theatre for the finish line, it's just going to be great."
The park boards says parking is an issue that will have to be figured out.
