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.
The Fitger's 5K is coming up April 11, and there are limited entries available for the race. If you've been considering entering, perhaps the fun look of the 2015 Finisher Shirt will get you motivated to sign up.
So, you've signed up to challenge yourself by running Grandma's Marathon weekend. Now the reality hits you that you need to have a training plan. Luckily, Grandma's Marathon is here to help you achieve your goals.
A sure sign we're over half way done with winter is that registration for the 2015 Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon is about to begin. Cross your fingers that you get in, as the race entry process is conducted through a lottery in which 6,700 participants will be randomly selected.
I realize spring is a still a long ways away, but once I hear news about the annual Fitger's 5K Run & Walk I start to get excited for a change of season. The downside is that the Fitger's 5K marks the start of my steady training schedule for the Gary Bjorklund Half Marathon and I'm still in lazy winter mode.
