John Beargrease Sled Dog MarathonJohn Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon

The Race Begins on January 31, 2021

Established in 1980, the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon is the premiere sled dog race series in North America. World-class mushers compete in the nearly 300-mile event – facing off against other seasoned competitors as well as the extremes of northern Minnesota weather and the deceivingly rugged terrain of the trail. The “Beargrease” is a qualifier for the famed Iditarod race in Alaska.
