John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon
John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon
Established in 1980, the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon is the longest running sled dog race in the lower 48 states. World class mushers face off against seasoned competitors and 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.
Races include the Beargrease 120, a mid-distance race, the Beargrease 40, a recreational class race as well as the Cub Run, a 2 or 4 mile loop for kids to get their chance behind a two-dog team.
All check points and road crossings are easily accessible to the public and provide many opportunities for photographers, winter camping or simply quality time around a campfire with good people, hot chocolate and the thrill of seeing the amazing canine athletes in action.

Best Stargazing
Best Stargazing

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.

Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.

In the winter, the dipper is at ‘3-o’clock’ with the handle hanging down.

Music by Gordon Thorne. Gordon Thorne picked up a guitar 30 years ago and hasn’t put it down since. He spent years mining early American blues and jazz, blending them with his own style, and serves up what he calls, “the modern sounds of yesterday – today”. Known as the meanest fingerpicker in Northern Minnesota, it is where he spends his time working, raising kids, and playing a little guitar.
