The Athletic Republic Run has been the lakes area premier half-marathon, half-marathon relay, 5K and 1-mile event since 2007. With race numbers doubling every year since it�s beginning, we�re expecting 1500 runners/walkers in 2013. The beautiful scenery of the Fergus Falls area, the variety of race lengths and ideal temperates in early June make the race a perfect fit for the casual runner/walker to the serious competitor who wants to tackle the challenging hills of the half-marathon course.
In 2012 the 2-person half marathon relay was a hit; a great event for those looking for something longer than a 5K, but not as long as a 1/2 marathon.
