For years, the process to get into the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon has been the same:  You are a provided a window in which to enter for the race, then you cross your fingers and hope you're randomly selected to participate via a lottery system.  Beginning with the 2018 race, that will change.

Grandma's Marathon has announced that entries for the 2018 Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon will be taken online on a first come, first registered basis until the race reaches 7,500 participants.

You can begin registering for the 2018 race beginning at 5 p.m. CDT on October 1, 2017.  It will be similar to trying to get concert tickets before the venue sells out.

The 28th annual Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon will be held Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 6:15 a.m.
