Each year when I run the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, I notice the platforms on the road at the various benchmarks, and I think "Well now my mom and friends now I'm still working my way down to Canal Park"
You can see by the picture that Grandma's Big Top Tent is THE PLACE TO BE for the kick-off party AND after the racing has been completed and it's time to celebrate. You won't want to miss the line-up this year and there is limited capacity so grab your friends, make your plans and get your tickets now!
Grandma's Marathon is more than just an even that takes place each June in Duluth. The organization also partners with local businesses and schools to promote healthy events and activities for all kids in the Northland. On such event event is the Essentia Health Fit-n-Fun Run.
I have a story "in progress", this is my 15th consecutive year of running Grandma's Half Marathon, I'm shooting for 20. Three ankle surgeries strategically placed so I could still run the next half marathon and the fact that I'm getting older is making me wonder if I'll succeed my goal. That's my story in a nutshell. Grandma's Marathon is looking for yours.
Last year, Grandma's Marathon brought the country duo Love & Theft to headline Friday night in the Canal Park Big Top Tent. The response was so strong that this year Friday night will go country once again.
Saturday morning, the 26th Annual Fitgers 5K will take place in the downtown and Canal Park Areas in Duluth. With about 2,000 participants expected to participate, there will be some traffic delays associated with the event.
Even if you aren't a runner, volunteer or spectator, you can still participate in this year’s 39th Grandma’s Marathon. Public nominations are currently being accepted for the 2015 Rudy Perpich Public Service Award.
