Grandma's Marathon attracts large number of local runners

A group of local runners poses with the New Richmond Running Club banner at the annual Friday night spaghetti feed that has become a Grandma's Marathon tradition.

Grandma's Marathon in Duluth remains one of the top running destinations in the Midwest and it attracted a large group of local entries for the 36th annual run on Saturday.

Chris Warp of Hammond led the local runners. He was one of the rare runners who finished the marathon in less than three hours, with a time of 2:59.20.

There were 5,785 runners entered in Saturday's marathon.
