If your New Years resolutions include getting into better shape, training for Grandma's Marathon is a perfect way to do it and you can still register before a price increase.

Grandma's Marathon reminds participants that the registration price for Grandma’s Marathon increases Tuesday, January 1.  Registration for the 43rd Annual Grandma’s Marathon Weekend races opened October 1.

All Grandma’s Marathon participants registered before 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2018 will receive a complimentary full-zip, fleece lined training jacket. After December 31, runners will have the option to purchase the jacket at a discounted price.

Entries for Grandma’s Marathon are taken on a first come, first serve basis until the race reaches 9,000 participants. The entry fee increases to $135 on January 1 with an additional price increase scheduled on April 1.

Participating in a marathon can seem like a daunting task.  However, if you start training now and ease your way into it, you'd be surprised at what you can do.  I've known people who do a run/walk combo which is easier on your body and can make for a better overall experience for those just looking to finish.
