Running Club Experience


There’s no better way to experience Grandma’s Marathon weekend than with the people closest to you. You and your running club can receive a VIP weekend experience… get signed up early, your other members can thank you later!

The Grandma’s Marathon Running Club Experience is designed for established running clubs of 10 or more runners to recruit and register their club members for the marathon.

A great running club brings us together, keeps on us track, and pulls us through thick and thin. We’re here to celebrate this community of passionate runners of every pace!


NOTE: Registration for the 2024 Running Club Experience will open on September 1, 2023. 


Please have the main contact, or captain, for the running club fill out the program application. This person will be sent all the information about the running club program and will be responsible for their club’s benefits, recruitment, and meeting program requirements.

NOTE: Clubs must have a minimum of 10 runners registered in the full marathon by April 15, 2024 in order to receive these benefits.
