Think you have what it takes to be a champion? We welcome an elite field for both Grandma’s Marathon and the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon each year, so you can come be part of one of the fastest and most scenic courses in the United States!
Inquiries will be accepted each year between January 1 and April 1. Considerations for entry, travel, or lodging assistance will be based on the depth of the field and availability of funds at the time of inquiry.
The elite fields for the 2022 Grandma’s Marathon and Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon are currently full. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact our Elite Athlete & Administration Director Sarah Culver via email at email@example.com.
