Fargo treasure hunters: Today's token has been claimed
Jason Medders of Fargo skipped his early-morning run Thursday and is now $500 richer because of it.
Medders found The Forum’s Treasure Token hidden on a railing near the railroad tracks by the Beyond Running store.
The part of the clue that tipped him off was the note to “make sure you have comfy shoes to walk off the food you just ate,” Medders said.
The Forum, which is sponsoring the treasure hunt for the fourth consecutive year during the Fargo Downtown Street Fair, provided a clue in today's paper to help hunters find the first token. One token will be hidden each day.
Each token is worth $500.
Look for clues about Friday's token and Medders' story in The Forum tomorrow.
