Athletics: William A. Irvin 5K Registration Closed

(Duluth, Minn.) Registration for the 16th annual William A. Irvin 5K is now closed, Grandma’s Marathon announced today. The 3.1-mile race, scheduled for Friday, June 19 at 6 p.m., reached its 1,500-person limit less than one week after the registration period began on March 18.
