Grandma's Marathon expects a shortfall of about $80,000 this year due to a drop in entries, but executive director Scott Keenan says the not-for-profit organization budgets conservatively and is in good shape financially.


Registration for the 33rd annual race ended Monday and organizers had 8,338 entrants near the close of business, although entries were taken on line through midnight. Keenan expected to top out at about 8,400, while the entry limit was 9,500 for the June 20 event.
