Want to take part in Grandma's Marathon Weekend's shortest race?  Registration for the William A. Irvin 5K will open to the first 1,900 registrants on Thursday, March 14th.  Last year the race reached capacity in about a month, so if running this race is on your list register as soon as you can!

The 3.1-mile run begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 21, near the permanently docked William A. Irvin ore boat on Duluth’s waterfront and is the kickoff for running events during Grandma's Marathon weekend. Registration remains open for the 37th annual Grandma’s Marathon set for Saturday, June 22, while the entry process for the 23rd annual Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon is closed.
