More than 6,000 runners crossed the finish line at the 39th annual Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, Minn., this past Saturday, June 20. The relatively flat, point-to-point course from Two Harbors to Duluth along Lake Superior is one of Competitor’s 15 bucket-list marathons, and had several fast finishes this weekend, including Kenyan winners Elisha Barno for the men’s and Jane Kibii for the women’s side. Barno ran the course’s fourth fastest time in 2:10:38, claiming the $10,000 winner’s check and $2,500 bonus for running sub-2:11. Kibii ran a personal best in 2:32:06 with American Lindsey Scherf close in second. Scherf also ran a personal best of 2:32:19 claiming the second fastest time for an American woman on the Grandma’s Marathon course.
