Grandma’s Marathon Reaches Registration Limit
Registration for the 2016 Grandma’s Marathon officially closed Thursday after hitting the registration limit of 8,500 runners.
The last time registration closed due to capacity was in 2008.
This year the race hit capacity in only three months.
Race officials attribute the unprecedented registration to the excitement surrounding the 40th anniversary of the race.
Race officials unveiled a new Aerial Lift Bridge-themed finisher medal as well as the inclusion of a free track jacket with registrations placed before January 1.
The Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and the William A. Irvin 5K also hit capacity.
At this time, registrations are still available through the official 2016 Charity Partners Program.
Grandma’s Marathon will launch registration for three more annual races at the beginning of the year- the Saint Fennessy 4K, Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler.
