From Owatonna to Duluth is just under 220 miles and should take about 3 hours and 20 minutes to drive. That would be a really good time to run Grandma's Marathon along the north shore from Two Harbors to Canal Park. About 50 runners from Owatonna are listed among the finishers of the marathon, half marathon or 5K run.

Those finishers of the 43rd annual event are recognized as H & R Block Stat Sheet Stuffers. Conditions were ideal on the first full day of summer Saturday with 50 degrees, partly cloudy skies and a bit of a tail wind.
