Duluth, Minn. - Over 200 elite athletes will run Saturday as part of the 43rd Grandma's Marathon weekend, but Jordan Hasay won't be one of them. The 27-year old olympic hopeful from California has suffered a injury.

It is said to be a small injury, but one that will keep her from running in the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon.

Hasay is one of the top women's distance runners in the U.S.  She has finished third in the Boston Marathon twice, including this past April.

She was also scheduled to be part of Friday's Pre-Race Talk Show at the DECC. Mandi Peterson, Marketing and PR Director for Grandma's Marathon, says as of now, Hasay won't be making the trip at all.

The Duluth News Tribune reports Hasay will participate in Friday's activities — via video — in a panel discussion from 3-4 p.m. at the DECC’s Edmund Fitzgerald Hall on how bodyweight support systems can help runners in their training.
