Schedule of Events & Maps

We want all of our participants, volunteers, and spectators to have an enjoyable experience in Duluth and at Grandma’s Marathon.

To help with that, we print an annual edition of the Grandma’s Marathon Weekend Guide. This is your official guide to race weekend and can answer many of the questions you may have about where to go, eat, drink, shop, sightsee, or do just about anything else while you’re in Duluth and the surrounding communities.

A 2022 version of the Grandma’s Marathon Weekend Guide will be released closer to race day. For reference, please click below to view the 2021 guide.
