Mark Knutson - Fargo Marathon Director

I have known GP “Coach” Pearlberg for over 12 years! I have known him as my own personal Marathon Coach (qualified me for Boston), as a Presenting Speaker at numerous races expos, as he Start/Finish Line MC and as a friend, and you will not find a better person to complete your race event! 


GP combines high level knowledge of running with “rockstar” like energy to make our races the best! I have worked with him at the Fargo Marathon, the Illinois Marathon and the Dick Beardsley Marathon…..NEVER disappointed!


If you’re looking to bring your race to the next level…..GP Pearlberg is your man!

Look no further for the Race Emcee or Keynote Speaker for your race

For over sixteen years now I have had the pleasure of being invited to be either Keynote Speaker, TV broadcaster and/or Race Emcee at some of the most respected road & track races in North America, including multiple engagements by the prestigious Miami, Fargo and Illinois marathons. Additionally I have lectured at countless other races, track meets, libraries, running stores and running clubs.


No matter the audience I am known for bringing my own brand of intense energy, my passion for running and knowledge of the sport of competitive running - all delivered with a dash of British humor and a desire to connect with my audience in a way that is both meaningful and memorable and adds to their overall race experience.
