This is a fantastic way to know where your runner is at all times, during this year's Grandma's Marathon.   It's called the Runner Tracking Service.

You can either click [here] or log on to and answer a few simple questions.

Name or names of your runner or runners and how you want to receive your information.  Would you prefer text or email?

This system is makes it possible to track runners at various checkpoints throughout the race using timing chips they attache to their shoes.

The sign-up period runs through 8p, Friday, June 15.  This is especially helpful to know when your runner crosses over the finish line.  If you have a designated area to meet once they cross, you should spend less time looking for them and have less worry, knowing they have gone the distance and made it to Canal Park.  Good Luck Runners and thanks to those of you who are the the all-important support system!
