Fargo Marathon Race Director Struck and Killed on His Bike by Truck Driver

July 11, 2023

Knutson had said this year would likely be his last at the helm, but sadly, he won’t be present at the 20th anniversary of the Essentia Health Fargo Marathon this May. On Sunday, the 53-year-old was killed in a collision with a pickup truck while riding his bicycle in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. He was struck by the driver, who was pulling a boat behind their truck, around 7am. No criminal charges have been filed, and the investigation is ongoing. Runners World
