Gearing Up for Grandma’s Podcast
Duluth Mayor Emily Larson and Lake County Chamber of Commerce President Janelle Jones join the podcast to talk about the municipal support that's required for Grandma's Marathon each and every year.
Mayor Larson and her city staff are integral to the success of Grandma's Marathon weekend, and the planning for each race is truly a year-round process. The city devotes resources, time, energy, and money to the race and has been one of its strongest supporters since the start in 1977.
Jones, meanwhile, is part of the extraordinary start line just outside of Two Harbors. That area has been vital to Grandma's Marathon weekend since the beginning, and the transformation of that area, headed by efforts of the Chamber of Commerce, is always a mini-miracle on race weekend.
