Duluth, Minn. -There's no slowing down this year with the races in the 43rd Grandma's Marathon weekend. With over 200 elite athletes this year, it seems like it could be a special Saturday with potential record times or even U.S. Olympic Trial Qualifying times.

An elite pack of athletes have converged on Duluth from all over the world. They include record setters, olympic hopefuls, returners and newcomers.

"I would love to break that course record just because it'd be a personal record for myself and I enjoy that kind of progression," says Susannah Scaroni, last year's women's wheelchair division champion at Grandma's.

Only tomorrow will tell who will emerge as the ultimate Grandma's victors.
