THE 2021 DICK & CARRIE PRE-RACE TALK SHOW
The Dick & Carrie Pre-Race Talk Show goes virtual this year, as our popular race announcers Dick Beardsley and Carrie Tollefson set the stage for the 45th annual Grandma’s Marathon weekend.

Joining Dick and Carrie this year are Tyler Jermann and Dakotah Lindwurm, both in the elite field and both with a chance to be the first Grandma’s Marathon champion since the 1980s. Also on the show is Brian Reynolds, a six-time world record holder for double amputee runners who is participating in this year’s Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon. Our other guest on the show is Lisa Baskfield, owner of Nature’s Gem CBD Health and Wellness and sponsor of Grandma’s marathon, to talk about the benefits of CBD in terms of runner training, performance, and recovery.

ROLLING START PROGRESSION – 2021 GRANDMA’S MARATHON WEEKEND
Grandma’s Marathon has partnered with world-renowned crowd scientist Marcel Altenburg of Manchester Metropolitan University to optimize the event’s participant flow as part of the organization’s COVID-modified race plan. This video compares the participant flow at the start and finish line of 2019 with what’s being planned for a half-capacity event in 2021. The finish line is one of the highest density spots on the racecourse, and Altenburg’s analysis shows a 64 percent decrease from the peak in 2019.
