Explore the Shore

Run. Stay. Explore.

There are so many reasons why running Grandma’s Marathon may just be the best experience of your life—and of course one Great one—Lake Superior. In addition to the marathon weekend activities and dining options, we encourage you continue to explore everything Minnesota’s North Shore region has to offer.

Whether you are an athlete, outdoor enthusiast, music lover, foodie, craft brew lover, or all of the above; there’s plenty for all to enjoy. If you’re running in one (or two) of the weekend races, encourage your friends and family to come cheer you along. They’ll be glad they came.
