Racing season is officially in full swing! The famous Grandma's Marathon is just a few months away and this race is a great way to get involved or to continue your training for the big event.

The 2024 Fitger's 5K

This year is the 35th anniversary of this staple Duluth race. The Fitger's 5K takes place on Saturday, April 20th. The race kicks off at 9 a.m. and starts at its famous namesake in Duluth!

The three-mile course takes you around downtown Duluth. It's a great way to get some steps in and to see the scenic sights! The good news is there are still a few spots open.

I love this race because it is a quintessential 'Duluth' race that takes you through some of the best parts of the area! It's one of the best Minnesota races in my opinion.
