We’re still running wild with excitement over how wonderful this year’s race weekend was! All the runners, volunteers, and community members never stop amazing us with their support and dedication to making the Grand Forks Marathon a must-attend event.
Race weekend is coming up quick! From training and traveling to costume bedazzling and carb loading, the next couple weeks will be filled with post-worthy pics from your running adventures. Get social with it and share your story with us using: #RunHogWild
Every year we’re excited to see our community enlivened with participants traveling from near and far to be a part of the Grand Forks Marathon weekend.

This 6th year is chalking up to be just as thrilling as we welcome a new runner from New York City on his unique goal – standing his way across the United States.
We could not be more thrilled with how this annual community event has helped us accomplish our mission of supporting active, healthy lifestyles to enhance the quality of life in the Grand Cities. The marathon weekend would not be possible without the hard work and dedication from the countless volunteers, coordinators, participants, and community members.
One particularly incredible addition to the race over the past few years is our Medical Director, Dr. Billy Haug, and his team of medical volunteers – they truly are life-savers! In addition to the medical side, this community event has meant a lot to Dr. Haug and his son, Sam, who also have participated in the Friday Family Fun Run for the past 2 years.
