Every person comes to Grandma’s Marathon with a story, and our local, regional, and national media partners work tirelessly to bring those stories to life and share them across our community, our state, and the world.
For interview requests or more information about Grandma’s Marathon, media members are asked to contact Marketing & Public Relations Director Zach Schneider via email at [email protected] or to call our office at (218) 727-0947.
Working media members must be credentialed to gain access to certain, secure areas on race weekend including the start lines, finish line, and Media Center. NOTE: All working media members must abide by race rules and regulations as well as local and state laws. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the current, and possibly future, events.
The application for 2023 media credentials will be available and distributed in early may. All media interested in covering Grandma’s Marathon must submit a credential request prior to June 1.
As part of our commitment to sustainability, our Grandma’s Marathon Media Guides and other media materials, including advance story ideas, are available and distributed digitally.
If you would prefer a printed version of the Grandma's Marathon Media Guide, please indicate on your credential application. Printed guides will be available for pickup on race week at either the Media Center or our Grandma's Marathon offices.
