Grandma’s Marathon: looking ahead to this summer!

Disclaimer: I received an entry to the Grandma’s Marathon to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

Grandmas Marathon has been on my racing bucket list for sometime. But for one reason or another the timing has never worked out. I have wanted so badly to run the point to point course that runs alongside of Lake Superior! And while heading to Minnesota is still not in the cards for me in 2021, I will still get to participate virtually! Virtual races are gaining popularity and I enjoy the flexibility they provide!

Grandma’s Marathonhas also has a way to bring the course to virtual runners using the Run Better app! You can run part or all of the course for either the half or full Marathon. You tell the app what speed you are running on the treadmill and it tells you what incline you should put the treadmill at. I see this really coming in handy for training!

Once you select Grandma’s Marathon you can choose which portion of the course you want to run!
The Run Better app then tells yon what to set your treadmill to mimic the part of the course you are running
This is what it looks like while you are running!

I think this app is pretty cool and plan to start using it for training! I hope to eventually run the course for the marathon in increments while training!

There are 3 options for the virtual race:

1. Competitive Division: proof of finish time required

2. Recreational Division: No awards, results listed separately. from competitive division

Incremental Division: complete your race in segments and submit cumulative time
