The William A. Irvin ore boat was built in the 1930s for U.S. Steel’s Pittsburgh Steamship Company. For more than 40 years the steamer carried coal and iron ore to Great Lakes ports. The steamer, which is longer than two football fields, is now owned and operated as a museum by the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.
The William A. Irvin 5K kicks off an exciting weekend of running events and festivities surrounding Grandma’s Marathon. The 3.1-mile course starts and finishes near the William A. Irvin Ore Boat located next to the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC). This race is perfect for people of all ages and abilities.
