Here's a perfect way to follow your runner down Grandma's Marathon Course, whether they're running the full or the half marathon.  My sister used this unique Verizon Wireless Tracking system to follow my progress at last year's Grandma’s Marathon.   I've had several requests for my bib number so you can track me while running the half marathon...I appreciate you caring, thanks!!!  Here's my number and details on how it works...

Log on to, and simply enter the name(s) of the runner(s) you want to track.  Then, select whether they want the information delivered by text message or email by entering a valid wireless phone number or email address.  My information you'll need:  Cathy Kates   #13010.

The tracking system, made possible through the support of Verizon Wireless, enables the progress of Grandma’s Marathon and Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon participants to be tracked at numerous checkpoints along the racecourse, including the finish line.

Signup before 9 p.m. Friday, June 17 by logging onto the Grandma's Marathon Web site or by stopping by the Verizon Wireless exhibit outside of the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC).

For more information, visit or call (218) 727-0947.

Good Luck to all the participants and THANK YOU to all the volunteers!!  YOU are SO appreciated!!!
