Running: Grandma's Marathon named to all-decade list

Duluth race voted as one of the top 20 marathons of the decade by BibRave.


Grandma’s Marathon has been included on the “Top 20 Marathons of the Decade” list, as voted on by participants and published by running website BibRave.

Already named by BibRave voters as one of the top five marathons in the country in 2018, Grandma’s Marathon cracked the all-decade list due to its “proven track record for excellent communication and organization.”

“It’s an honor to be included because these voters are largely people who have been to and participated in our race,” Grandma’s Marathon Executive Director Shane Bauer said, “but an award like this is more reflective on our community as a whole than it is just Grandma’s Marathon. There are more than 800 marathons in the United States, and ranking near the top of all those is a testament to the overall experience our community provides to thousands of participants every June.”

BibRave is a website where participants can share their experiences and feedback following a race.

Grandma’s Marathon also was named by BibRave voters as one of the nation’s top five “Race-Cations,” which is described as a premier race combined with weekend experiences to make potential extra travel and logistics worth the time.
