Event Description

Due to current Covid restrictions Spectators will not be allowed at any of the Beargrease events in 2021

The race commemorates the life of John Beargrease, the son of a Chippewa chief who delivered mail by dog sled along Lake Superior’s rugged North Shore in the late 19th century.
The most challenging race in the lower 48, the Beargrease is a qualifying race for Alaska’s famous Iditarod. The grueling contest marks a 400-mile route from Duluth to Gunflint Lake on the Canadian border and back. A shorter, mid-distance race goes one-way on the route, full marathon doubles back on same route.
Spectators can watch these amazing teams pass by – checkpoints are accessible by car and allow close-up access to the teams.
