Grandma's Marathon is one of two major marathons in Minnesota, alongside the Twin Cities Marathon, and has been growing ever since its inception in 1971. With a field of 9,000 runners of all calibers, and a relatively flat course along the north shore of Minnesota, this is a great option for first-time and seasoned marathoners alike.
As well, this event hosts the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, the William A. Irvin 5K and a variety of specialty races. There is a full weekend of activity!
