With the popular Fitgers 5k race coming up April 20th, entries are no longer being accepted.

Grandmas Marathon announced today that the field for the 2013 Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk has reached its capacity and registration is now closed.

 Registration was limited to the first 1,900 entrants, an increase of 100 from last year. T
 
Registered participants will be mailed confirmation postcards and can pick up their race packets at Fitger’s on Friday, April 19 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or on race day from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
 
The race begins on East Superior Street in front of Fitger’s and travels through downtown Duluth and Canal Park before finishing back at Fitger’s. An award ceremony begins at 10:30 a.m.
 
All net proceeds from the Fitger’s 5K benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF).
