Due to the construction project on Superior Street in Downtown Duluth, part of the marathon route had to be changed, the organizers of Grandmas Marathon want make this as seamless as possible for spectators to watch the runners.
First Off, Congratulations to all the Runners in this years Grandmas Marathon, you did it! And to Duluth native Kara Goucher, for not only winning the women's division of the half marathon, but setting a new course record!
Having been a spectator for the last 11 Grandma's Marathons it is truly amazing to see the power and strength of the human spirit. What other time do you get to yell at complete strangers and have them smile back and wave?
