Grandmas runs by my old home in Duluth. I am not a runner but if you want to know anything specific about the course I might be able to help. I have biked the route.

The weather can be an issue. It can be very cold, damp and foggy at the end of June along Lake Superior.

Or, less frequently, too hot.

I did Grandma's in 2003. I would highly recommend it. It's fairly flat. In fact, I can't remember much elevation at all. I agree with goldfinch about the weather. The year I ran it, it was slightly humid but not unbearable. It's a top-notch marathon - extremely well-organized.
