Fargo Marathon 2015: Spectating

cheer squad
It might have been freezing but Fargo showed up to cheer on the runners. All along 9th and 8th and Broadway masses thronged to glimpse the running spectacle. I believe this is one of the reasons this event draws so many participants- there are spectators.
I have done other races and nothing makes a long run go better than a few words of encouragement or the excitement of lots of people. It is that energy that a crowd generates for the runners that makes this marathon special.
The Fargo Marathon gets it right when they route the races into the neighborhoods and not on the outskirts of town.
