Running with the Changes
Our organization is thrilled to announce that we’re bringing you a brand NEW race event in August 27th-28th, 2021, and have moved our 10th annual Grand Forks Marathon weekend dates to April, starting in 2022. These changes allow our non-profit race organization to continue giving back to our community in an even bigger, better way.
ROAD CLOSURES: Coming Soon
By participating in the Grand Forks Marathon Weekend, you not only strengthen yourself but also take an active part in connecting with the community – go you!
Did you know that by participating in one of our races you are supporting local student athletes? Our mission from day one has been to support active lifestyles for kids of all ages in the Greater Grand Forks Community. We do this by removing financial barriers to help our area stay active by providing complimentary race entries to Special Olympics of North Dakota athletes and partners, as well as donating our net proceeds to these awesome youth-empowering 501(c)(3) charities:
Inspires the improvement of self-esteem in adolescent girls through the empowerment of self and service to others taught through life skill lessons, female mentorship, and physical activities.
Helps provide students of low-income families with necessary supplies so they can participate in extra-curricular physical activities at school.
Promotes kids being involved in active programs that foster better health and positive behavior by cultivating values, skills and relationships.
