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.
We are thrilled that you’ve decided to race Grand Forks this year and look forward to a weekend filled with some hog-wild fun! With just a few short days until race day, here are the details to know for a successful weekend:
6:30PM – First Annual Hog Dog Jog
6:30PM to 12:00AM – ‘Sit, stay’ for Yappy Hour after the race
Looking for the easiest way to make it to the start line race morning? We’ve got you covered! Hitch a ride, make some new friends and avoid the parking lot lines by taking our free shuttles! They will be available from the SCHEELS parking lot, located at the Columbia Mall, 2800 S Columbia Rd, Grand Forks, ND 58201.
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
The 2017 race weekend marks our 6th year! This event presents our grand cities with a wonderful opportunity to annually raise funds for youth athletes and positively impact our community. In 2016 alone, we received over $30,000 in donations to our community and had an estimated economic impact of $212,500.
None of this would be possible without all the amazing, inspirational individuals that participate in the event. It all comes down to face we see out there come race morning – be it running, volunteering, or cheering!
