The John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon

For over 40 years, the Minnesota’s North Shore comes alive with the excitement of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon race, which celebrates and honors the spirit of John Beargrease and brings thousands of worldwide spectators and hundreds of mushers from across the nation.

The series features several races, including the longest sled dog marathon in the lower 48 states, each fending off Minnesota’s extreme winter weather and rugged terrains. Join us for the 2021 event, kicking off on January 31, (from the comfort of your own home!) in Duluth, and finishing in Grand Portage, MN.

Both the John Beargrease Sled Dog Mid-Distance Race and the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon will finish in Cook County, MN.

Meet the Mushers

Due to Covid all in person non-race events have been cancelled. We thank you for all of your support and hope to see you at all our events in 2022.
