DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - More than 18 thousand runners are registered for the various races during Grandma's Marathon weekend and those numbers are expected to swell to 65 thousand when you count the family and friends they bring along.  Anna Tanski, the CEO of Visit Duluth, says the economic impact in the area will be in excess of 8.5 million dollars.  Hotel rooms are at a premium this weekend and although a few remain, most accommodations from Hinckley, up the north shore and in much of northwestern Wisconsin are already booked.
