The Grandma’s Marathon Kicks Off Virtual Races
Grandma’s Marathon weekend may be canceled this year, but runners are still hitting the pavement to clock in their times.
Beginning Monday, registered runners could run their races, including the William A. Irvin 5K, the Garry Bjorklund half marathon or the full marathon.
Each participant can print out their own race bib and then submit their times online. While those times won’t be race official, all runners will receive a medal later this summer.
“They were excited that they could finish their time right away and log it before it gets too warm where they run. So it’s nice there’s a big window so runners can either follow the same training program that they were planning to run and complete their races in June,” marketing and public relations director of Grandma’s Marathon Mandi Peterson said.
More than 200 people have already finished their races. Registered runners have until July 31 to submit their times.
