Grandma's Marathon | Post-Race Information

T-SHIRTS, MEDALLIONS & REFRESHMENT TICKETS: T-shirts, medallions and refreshment tickets for finishers are located at the end of the finish line chutes.

Refreshment tickets can be redeemed in the Marathon Activity Area (Big Top Tent). Note: After 8 p.m. admittance to the Activity Area will be for those age 21 and older.

The Information Center is located next to the Medical Tent in the runners’ recovery and activity area. All recovered lost and found articles will be brought here.

MEETING AREA: With thousands of people in the Canal Park area during and after the race, it is easy for groups to become separated. We have set up a meeting area to help reunite people. The runners’ Meeting Area is in the grassy area near the Marine Museum.

The signs are labeled as follows: AB, CD, EF, GH, IJ, KL, MN, OP, QRS, TUV, and WXYZ. If you do not use this system, please make arrangements on where to meet with your family or friends. NOTE: The finish line announcers will not page people.

SHOWERS & MASSAGES: Showers will be available on race day. (Locations will be listed in your runners information packet at packet pick-up.)

Massages by professionally licensed therapists are available free for race participants on race day. The Massage Tent is in the runners' recovery area in Canal Park. Massages are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Massage appointments are available on Sunday, June 22, 2014 for $65.00/hr. To schedule a massage time for Sunday, call Pat Luoma at (218) 348-6888.

The Massage Tent is sponsored by The Clinic for Massage Therapy
