Obviously, there is more info on the Grandma's Marathon Website. You can also register there if you want to enter one of the races that are still open. Having said that, there is also information on the website about entering one of the sold-out races by becoming one of the Official 2022 Charity Partners.

How it works is you team up with one of the Charity Partners on the website and if they have entries available you can register that way and then raise money for that charity. You will have to contact the organization that you would like to partner with and see if they have any registrations available and what the parameters are to raise money and enter the race.

The 2022 Grandma’s Marathon weekend will be held June 16-18, 2022, That means a few things. You don't have much time to get your training in, you should contact any charities you want to run for and raise money, and get registered.
