Grandma’s Marathon Reveals New Course, Day And Time For The Minnesota Mile
The 12th Annual Minnesota Mile will be a bit more scenic with the new one mile loop to be moved from downtown Duluth. Registration is now open and fills up fast. Whether you are a seasoned vet of running or this is your first race, it promises to showcase Duluth's finest views.
Intrigued? I won't keep it from you any longer, this year's Minnesota Mile will be held a long the Duluth's Skyline Parkway so you can view Lake Superior and the St. Louis River Bay while you run or walk. It won't be held on Sunday either, for the first time it will be held on a Thursday and in the evening as the sun is beginning to set.
The race is divided into the following for you to choose from:
- Wheelchair Division (open to those ages 7 & older)
- Open Division (all abilities and ages 7 & older)
- Women’s Elite Division (invitation only)
- Men’s Elite Division (invitation only)
Registration is open now with early registrants saving a bit of money. It will cost $20 until September 5. After that and on race day it will be $30. If you have a youth racing between the ages of 7-14, that cost is $10.
Remember, the Minnesota Mile offers runners a very unique opportunity. If you run the Minnesota Mile you have the chance to secure a spot in the 2018 Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon. They will be randomly selecting 250 finishers (ages 12 & older) to receive guaranteed entries for June 16, 2018. Cool, huh?
The Minnesota Mile is a stop on the nationwide Bring Back the Mile Grand Prix Tour. [More]
