Security Jewelers Auctioning Marathon Entries For Charity

DULUTH, Minn. – Going once, going twice, sold!

The deadline to register for the Garry Bjorkland Half Marathon may have passed but if you’re still interested you have a chance to bid for a spot.

Security Jewelers in Duluth is auctioning off a few of its marathon entries to the highest bidder.

This year the proceeds will benefit Hills Youth and Family Services formerly known as Woodland Hills.

“The community has been good to us, so we want to give back to them,” said Security Jewelers Co-Owner Jay Seiler. “It’s supported us for 94 years, so far and we like to do things that help it.”

The highest bid received in previous years was $1,300.

“Usually we get between about $300–$500 for an entry, because this is such a desired race for people to run they’ll spend a little bit more for the opportunity to do it,” said Seiler.

The auction closes this Friday, April 13 at noon.
