Weather Causes Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon To Be Postponed

The weather hasn’t been the best of friends to organizers and mushers with the Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon and this year it has forced a later start.

The Duluth News Tribune is reporting that the Beargrease, which was scheduled to start January 27, will now start March 10.

Before Friday’s rain, race organizers had made contingency plans for marathon racers to leave the start line near Duluth with fewer dogs than normal, while the start of the mid-distance race would move to Lake County Highway 2 north of Two Harbors, where there was more snow. But the rain worsened already marginal trail conditions.

Weather and trail conditions forced cancellation of the race last year and in 2007.
