The Fargo Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K races are held on a weekend early in May in Fargo, North Dakota. These races draw more than 12,000 people to Fargo each year, and they have been a celebrated Fargo tradition since 1994. If you're training to take part in one of these running races, get ready for your race with the help of Custom Training Plans. We work in concert with professional running trainers to develop customized Fargo Marathon training plans, Fargo 10K training plans, Fargo Half Marathon training plans, and Fargo 5K training plans for every type of runner. All of our training programs are designed to fit your current level of physical fitness and help you make steady progress as race day approaches.

Fargo Marathon Training Plans

If you’re aiming for Boston, Fargo’s a great place to reach for it. The full marathon route is a flat, urban loop, and it is a Boston Marathon qualifying race. The race starts at the Fargodome. Once they’re en route, runners will thread through the neighborhoods of North Fargo before meeting up with Fargo’s Rock ‘n’ River Road. Whatever distance you choose, CTP’s training plans can help you get ready to race with customized running workouts. Intervals and sprints build cardiovascular strength and endurance that can help you reach the finish line at the Fargo Theatre feeling strong.

When you choose to train using a customized CTP Fargo Marathon training plan, you can be sure that your workouts are set at just the right intensity for you. Each workout is customized to suit your current level of fitness, helping you to prevent injury and burnout as you make strides toward race day. Whether you’re taking on your first 5K or you’ve been running marathons for years, Fargo Marathon training plans, Fargo 10K training plans, Fargo Half Marathon training plans, and Fargo 5K training plans from Custom Training Plans can give you an edge.

Our method

  1. Certified Coaches

    With the expertise of USATF certified coaches and physical therapists, we built an advanced model to weigh the effects of runner-specific variables on training outcomes.

  2. Custom Race Profile

    We analyzed unique characteristics of hundreds of races across the country to build a “race profile” into our model that accounts for elevation gain, altitude, time of year, and more.

  3. Training Plan Model

    Our model generates a unique training plan for you and your race, and all plans are reviewed by a coach and hand-tweaked before they make their way to you.
