Lodging

The best way to secure lodging for the 2021 Grandma’s Marathon weekend is to call the hotel directly. Many area hotels do not take online bookings for Grandma’s Marathon weekend.

NOTE: Due to the popularity of Grandma’s Marathon weekend, we encourage our participants, volunteers, and spectators to begin looking for lodging as early as possible.


Grandma’s Marathon’s official lodging sponsor is Holiday Inn & Suites -Downtown Duluth.

You can also check with our other sponsor hotels, featured below, to book a comfortable stay for your Grandma’s Marathon weekend.
