Grandmas Marathon Announces New Race Series Challenge

Saint Fennessy 4k - Grandmas Marathon
Saint Fennessy 4k – Grandmas Marathon

If you’re looking for incentive to run throughout the year, Grandmas Marathon has a new race series challenge that would be a perfect way to stay in shape in 2016.

The KP Challenge will add three popular Grandma’s Marathon races to your calendar.  The series will help keep participants on a regular running schedule that supports the successful completion of longer distances.

Registering for the KP Challenge locks in the lowest price for all three races in the convenience of one purchase.  Participants will receive an exclusive finisher’s award, and bragging rights, upon completion of the final race.

Here are the individual race details:

Saint Fennessy 4k: Saturday, March 19

  • $25 entry fee
  • St. Patrick’s Day fun, including prizes awarded for the best costume
  • Finisher’s award for all participants
  • Post-race party at McKenzie’s Bar & Grill including complimentary beverage tickets

Fitger’s 5k: Saturday, April 16

  • $30 entry fee
  • ¼ zip tech shirt for all participants
  • USATF-certified, closed, paved course traveling through downtown Duluth

Park Point 5 Miler: Thursday, July 14 

  • $25 entry fee
  • Chip-timed, USATF-certified, closed course
  • Prizes awarded to all finishers

The KP Challenge is named in honor of Kevin Peterson, a dear friend to Grandma’s Marathon, who lost his battle to Pancreatic Cancer in 2013.  Peterson was a member of the marathon’s founding organization, the North Shore Striders.  His involvement continued throughout his life as a volunteer and board member.

Registration for the KP Challenge costs $100 with all net proceeds benefitting the Young Athletes Foundation.
