John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon
January 27 - 30. Sunday races start at 11:00 am • Learn More »

Established in 1980, the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon is the longest sled dog race in the lower 48 states. World class mushers including Susan Butcher, Jamie Nelson, John and Jason Baron have competed in the nearly 400 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. The organization hosts a Mid-Distance race as well; like the marathon mushers, the mid distance racers also travel through the rugged Sawtooth mountains of the North Shore of Minnesota.
