"We printed about 85 to 90 percent of everything we do for the expo and the finish line for all the runners, volunteers, and people that come down to experience Grandma's every year. We had it mainly all printed then COVID-19 hit, so that kind of set us back a bit in trying to find a home for it all," explained President of Advantage Emblem & Screen Printing Nathan Bentley.

The company plans to be in Canal Park both Friday and Saturday from 10-6 practicing social distancing and making it safe for anyone to come down. You can get a piece of history with this year's gear as they went back and even added the word 'virtual' on some of their items.

"It makes it even more of a collector's item as there's never been a virtual Grandma's before and we're hoping there never will be in the future," added Bentley.

Advantage Emblem will also be placing large decals on the streets and sidewalks of the start and finish of each race for anyone who wants to take their annual photo.
