The Fargo Marathon has been sold, Rugged Races has purchased the marathon

The Sanford Fargo Marathon has been sold. Rugged Races has purchased the marathon from founder Mark Knutson.

The company, with offices in Chicago and Boston, says it doesn't plan to change any aspects of the marathon and will help streamline operations, improve quality and attract more runners. Knutson will remain as race director. Rugged Races runs marathons and other events around the country.

The marathon started in 2005 with about 2,600 people taking part. Five years later, there were nearly 20,000 participants.

Next year's marathon is scheduled for May 9.
