Athletics: Grandma's Marathon 2009 Hall Of Fame

(Duluth, Minn.) Grandma's Marathon has announced its 2009 Hall of Fame class. The nonprofit organization has selected four new inductees into its hall -- John Docter, Steve Greenfield, Kellie Luedloff and Bill Wenmark.

Docter and Greenfield both have been volunteer media vehicle drivers for more than 30 years. Luedloff is a longtime volunteer and has been captain of the seven-mile water station since 1994. Wenmark is a longtime Grandma's Marathon participant, training program founder and long-distance running ambassador.

"We are pleased to recognize the contributions of these four individuals, who are all very deserving of a place in our hall of fame. The success and development of our organization is based on dedicated people like these," said Scott Keenan, executive director of Grandma's Marathon.

The 2009 Hall of Fame inductees will receive their awards at Saturday’s post-race award ceremony which begins at 4 p.m. at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC).

Grandma's Marathon weekend kicks off with the SMDC Health System Health and Fitness Expo which begins at 5 p.m. on June 18 and continues all day on Friday, June 19. Other Friday events include the Michelina's All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner, the Whipper Snapper Races for Kids, guest speaking presentations, the William A. Irvin 5K and live musical entertainment.

The Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and Grandma's Marathon are Saturday, June 20. For more information, visit GrandmasMarathon.com or call (218) 727-0947.
