Volunteers Clean-Up After Grandma’s Marathon

About Half of the Marathon Set-Up Taken Down Sunday

DULUTH, Minn. – That’s a wrap on one of the busiest weekends of the year in Duluth. Grandma’s Marathon brought thousands of runners and fans to the city.

Hundreds of volunteers are cleaning up the marathon course and the finish line area in Canal Park.

According to volunteer coordinators, about half of the marathon set-up was taken down on Sunday.

“All in all I feel pretty good where we’re at,” said Erik Nelson, a Finish Line Coordinator with Grandma’s Marathon. “We had a week to set it up and three days to take it down, so it’s kind of all hands on deck and full speed ahead.”

Just after the final steps are taken to wrap up this year’s event, organizers will start planning next year’s 42nd annual Grandma’s Marathon.
