Grandma's Marathon deadline extendedDULUTH, Minn. — Organizers of Grandma's Marathon have extended registration for this year's race by an extra week.
The extension gives runners through June 7 to join the field for Grandma's 37th running.
Scott Keenan, executive director of Grandma's Marathon, says with this year's race falling a week later than usual, officials wanted to give runners extra time to enter.
This year's Two Harbors-to-Duluth race will be June 22. The last time Grandma's Marathon occurred on a date later than this year was in 1990, when it was June 23.
Runners can register online at www.GrandmasMarathon.com . So far more than 7,100 runners have signed up.
