Grandma’s Marathon registration approaching price increase

The registration price for the 42nd Grandma’s Marathon increases on January 1.

Registration for Grandma’s Marathon Weekend races opened October 1, 2017, which included Grandma’s Marathon, the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and the William A. Irvin 5K. This is the second year that registration for all three races opened on the same day. The Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and the William A. Irvin 5k races are sold out for 2018.

All Grandma’s Marathon participants registered before 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2017 will receive a complimentary full-zip, fleece lined training jacket. After December 31, runners will have the option to purchase the jacket at a discounted price. Entries for Grandma’s Marathon are taken on a first come, first serve basis until the race reaches 9,000 participants. The entry fee increases to $135 on January 1 with additional price increases scheduled until the race limit is met (see below for complete pricing structure).

Those looking for the ultimate race experience are invited to take the Full Great Grandma’s Challenge, which pairs the William A. Irvin 5K with the full marathon. Registration is limited to the first 500 individuals.
