As a fundraiser for the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF), Grandma's Marathon is offering an opportunity for 100 individuals to be guaranteed an entry into the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon on June 22, 2013 and June 21, 2014.
Kara Goucher’s first time racing in her hometown as a professional turned into a victory party as the former Duluth resident won the women’s race at the 2012 USA Half Marathon Championships.
Goucher, 33, ran the fastest ever women’s time on the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon course – 1 hour, 9 minutes and 46 seconds. Headed for the Summer Olympics in London to race in the Aug. 5 marathon, she captured the national title and $14,000 in prize money – $12,000 for first place and an additional $2,000 bonus for a time under 1:10:00.
