2012 John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon Cancelled

Monday, January 16th, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Organizers have cancelled the 2012 John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon on the north shore due to the lack of snow.

The competitions’ Board of Directors met on Sunday to determine if the trail conditions are safe enough to hold the race. In a statement, the board said, “With the safety of mushers, dogs and the many volunteers being the number one concern of the Board, lack of snow and poor trail conditions prohibit the running of a safe race.”

Even though the race itself won’t happen, a number of other race week events will go on as scheduled… visit the website beargrease.com for more details. ,

It’s only been cancelled once in its almost 30 year history.
