The love for running is flourishing in our area.

That was reflected in the large number of local runners who took part in Grandma’s Marathon and the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon in Duluth on Saturday.

There were a number of runners who were among the 6,356 runners who completed Saturday’s marathon, which stretched from Two Harbors to Duluth. The top finisher among the local runners was Chris Kamrath, who finished the course in 3:21.59. Joy Keller was the top finisher among the local females in the race, finishing in 3:28.33.

An even larger group of local runners took part in the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, where there were 7,492 finishers. Recent New Richmond High School graduate Max Fore was the top local finisher, with a time of 1:17.17. McKenzie Kelly Klitz was the top female finisher among the local runners in 1:27.54.

Here is a list of local runners and runners with local ties who competed in Saturday’s races.
