Bob Gustafson, with Grandma's Marathon, stopped by the show to talk about a few of their great upcoming runs!

The Fitger's 5K might be closed to registration now, but you can still help out a great cause!  Bob told us that "It's a fundraising race for our Young Athletes Foundation." Even if you're not in the race, Bob encourages you to come down on Saturday and make a donation to the foundation. There will be 2,000 people taking to the asphalt for this one! It's also special because this year is the 25th Anniversary of Fitger's 5K.

And Grandma's Marathon, Half Marathon, and the William A. Irvin 5K are just 2 short months away! Registration is still open for the 5K and for the Marathon, but the Half-Marathon is closed to new registrants.

If you want more info, head to grandmasmarathon.com. And be sure to head down on Saturday, April 19th at 9:00 AM to the Fitger's Complex in Duluth for the Fitger's 5K!
