‘Gearing up for Grandma’s’

If you are training for a race during Grandma’s Marathon weekend in June, then you won’t want to miss the annual Gearing Up for Grandma’s pre-race seminar on Saturday, March 10.

This free event from 9 to 11 a.m. at Essentia Health’s First Street Building in Duluth is a valuable training resource for both first-timers and veteran runners.

Of the seminar’s presenters, the featured speaker is 29-year-old Andrew Carlson, who trains with Team USA Minnesota and placed sixth in the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials last month in Houston. Racing in his first event at the marathon distance, he finished in 2 hours, 11 minutes and 24 seconds.

Following the individual presentations, a question and answer session will be held with all of the presenters. A prize drawing will conclude the event. For more information, call 218-727-0947 or visit GrandmasMarathon.com.
