DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - The country’s 17th largest marathon was welcomed back into the Northland on Saturday morning, Grandma’s Marathon.

During the full marathon in the elite men’s and women’s division, both of the predicted top finishers proved why.

In last year’s race, Dakotah Lindwurm became the first Minnesota woman to win Grandma’s since the 1991, and in this year’s race, the Minnesota native became a back-to-back two-time champion.

Lidwurm also set a new PR, 2:25:01 shaving four minutes off of her old time, just seconds way from setting the new course record.

On the men’s side of the course, Dominic Ondoro who set Grandma’s Marathon men’s race record in 2014 finished first again on Saturday with a time of 2:09:34, just 0.28 seconds shy of his time in 2014.
