Dangerous thunderstorms Sunday morning forced the cancellation of the Minneapolis Marathon.  This must be so hard for the runners who train long and hard for the race, only to have their moment taken away due to weather.

Grandmas Marathon has stepped up and now runners have a chance to get a marathon in yet this month.

To accommodate those impacted by today’s cancellation of the Minneapolis Marathon, registration has reopened for Grandma’s Marathon.   Marathon registration, which initially closed May 31, now will remain open until 11:59 p.m. (CDT) on Monday, June 2.
