RUN for HIKE! We have been granted 10 charity bibs to run the famous Grandma’s Marathon and Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon in Duluth, MN on June 18, 2022. We are recruiting for five runners for the marathon (26.2 miles) and five runners for the half marathon (13.1 miles). Fundraising is required for the charity bibs: $3,000 minimum for the marathon, and $1,500 for the half marathon. Each runner will have support with fundraising and guidance for achieving their goals. We are looking to host the team together in MN over the weekend of the races and each runner will be provided with a HIKE Fund running tank, hat, and other essentials. If you are interested in being a member of the HIKE Fund Marathon/Half Marathon Team, complete this survey by November 30th: https://forms.gle/nX64BJr3gaAnA6nF7.
