Event Update

Due to weather issues, NDSU has canceled the Lyle Hokanson outdoor track meet.  The original plan was to start at the Shelly Ellig Indoor track complex and finish on the outdoor track. Because of this change, we have changed our route to start & finish at the Shelly Ellig Indoor track complex.  All pre-race and post race activities will be located in warmth of the Shelly Ellig track complex.  The 200 meter track will also be available for anyone with a race bib  that want to get in some extra miles before or after the event.

Welcome to the Inaugural Soles n' Motion 10 MIle Run, 5K Run/Walk and Kids Run hosted by  soleMOTION Race Management Services LLC.   Soles n' Motionis run in coordination with the annual Lyle Hokanson Classic outdoor track meet.  Take part in Soles n' Motion and stick around and watch some of the best Track & Field athletes in the region.  We are excited to partner with Special Olympics North Dakota - Cass County with a portion of the profits going to support the Special Olympics mission.  Soles n' Motion is also working in coordination with Fargo Marathon Inc. to help support those planning on participating in Fargo Marathon Events in May.
