Since our inaugural race in 1977, Grandma’s Marathon has grown into something much bigger than just a 26.2-mile race along the scenic North Shore of Minnesota.

It’s now become a “can’t-miss” weekend in June, a moment when participants of all calibers come together to celebrate the vigor of the human spirit.

It’s a day the word “impossible” ceases to exist, a day that you and 9,000 others will start as strangers but finish as friends.

So get ready to once again tie up your laces for another year of memories, miles, and human might.


The dates for this event have passed. No future dates are available at this time.

Race packet pickup for Grandma's Marathon is June 18-19 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.
