2010 Grandma's Marathon Registration Opens July 13
Early Sign-up Period Includes $10 Entry Fee Discount
(Duluth, Minn.) Registration for the 34th running of Grandma's Marathon
begins Monday, July 13.
For the first time in its history, Grandma's Marathon is offering an early
registration option that features a $10 discount off of the $85 entry fee.
To receive the discount, runners should log onto GrandmasMarathon.com and
register anytime between July 13, 2009 and September 7, 2009.
In addition to receiving a $10 discount and securing a spot in the 34th
annual Grandma's Marathon, scheduled for June 19, 2010, each person who
signs up during early registration will receive a package of coupons and
discounts from area hotels and attractions.
"This is a great opportunity for marathon participants to not only take
advantage of a discounted entry fee, but also to benefit from the many
valuable offers provided by our community partners," said Scott Keenan,
executive director of Grandma's Marathon.
After September 7, the entry fee will increase to $85 until the race
reaches its 9,500-runner capacity. In past years, the sign-up period for
the marathon opened in mid-January.
Registration procedures for the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and the

period is set for February 17 – March 1 and William A. Irvin 5K
