(Duluth, Minn.) Registration for the 2010 Grandma's Marathon begins
Thursday, Jan. 14 at 12:01 a.m. (CST). Visit GrandmasMarathon.com starting
Thursday to register for the event's 34th running which is set for
Saturday, June 19 at 7:30 a.m.
The 26.2-mile race from Two Harbors to Duluth is limited to the first 9,500
participants. Nearly 1,500 runners signed up during the marathon's early
registration period last summer, so only about 8,000 spots will be
available when general registration opens.
"We are extremely excited about this year's marathon," said Scott Keenan,
executive director of Grandma's Marathon. "We will continue to focus our
efforts on orchestrating the highest quality events possible for our
participants and we promise a great event for everyone."
Grandma's Marathon weekend is presented by Target, Toyota and Wells Fargo
Bank Duluth and also features the 20th annual Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon
and the 17th annual William A. Irvin 5K. Registration for those two events
will begin in February and March, respectively. The Garry Bjorklund Half
Marathon will take place on Saturday, June 19 at 6:30 a.m. and the William
A. Irvin 5K on Friday, June 18 at 6 p.m.
