2020 Grandma's Marathon, Half, and 5K

Update: Due to COVID-19, Grandma's Marathon events have gone virtual! Now it's easier than ever to run or walk for kids who are counting on us.

Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer. One in eight children with a cancer diagnosis won't survive, and 60% who do suffer significant, lifelong side effects.

By joining Team CureSearch, you'll help fund more cures and better treatments so that one day every child diagnosed will not just grow up, but be healthy enough to run a marathon or do whatever it is they dream of!

New for 2020:

All Grandma's races have gone virtual. Walk or run your miles (and log your time) anytime between May 1 and July 31 to recieve your finisher's swag!

Fundraising deadlines have been extended and our minimum goals have been reduced.

Complete your miles wherever you live, keeping in mind local, state, and federal guidelines.

Increased virtual support and comaraderie.

Complete your miles in one run/walk or over time.

Integrate your Facebook page and your CureSearch Fundraising page for fast and easy fundraising.

All Full Marathon, Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, and William A. Irwin 5K runners must follow the steps outlined below and register for their respective race by Grandma's charity deadline of 11:59 PM on May 1, 2020.
