Duluth, MN (Northland, MN) --- The 35th annual Grandma's Marathon weekend is officially in the books, and it was a record-setting weekend at that.

Course records were set in the men's half marathon and the women's wheelchair marathon, while the men's full marathon was the closest race in Grandma's history - the winning margin was only two-tenths of a second.

Add to that a record number of participants in the William Irvin 5K and the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, as well as increased registration in the full 26.2-mile race, and you've got yourself a pretty good weekend.

Grandma's Marathon public relations director Bob Gustafson stopped by the Northland's NewsCenter studios after the races to talk all things marathon with Zach Schneider.
