Grandma's Marathon registration opens on Friday

The 2022 race weekend is scheduled for June 16-18.


Registration for the 2022 Grandma's Marathon opens on Friday (Oct. 1) as organizers plan for a full-capacity event for the first time in three years.

The 2022 race weekend is scheduled for June 16-18, with room for 9,000 entries for Grandma’s Marathon, 8,000 for the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, and 2,700 entries for the William A. Irvin 5K.

Registration for all three weekend races is first-come, first-served and will open at 7 p.m. Central time on Friday. Registrants for the full marathon pay $120 until Oct. 16; the price goes up $10 on that day and again on Jan. 1, 2022 and April 1. The half marathon has a $110 registration fee and follows a similar structure. The William A. Irvin 5K starts at $40, goes up to $45 on Oct. 16 and is $50 after Jan. 1. A virtual option for $35 is available for that race.

The cancelation policy for the 2022 race will mirror that of 2021: If the event is switched to a virtual format due to COVID-19, registered in-person participants will receive a 40% discount code that can be used three times from 2023-27 for any of the weekend events.
