Frosty Beargrease start is ‘good for the dogs’

DULUTH, MN — “Yes, it’s cold but it’s great for the dogs.” This was the main mantra repeated by musher, spectators, and race officials at the frosty starting line of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon.

Despite frigid subzero temperatures, fans gathered to see off the 17 mushers in the 300-mile North Shore race, the 23 mushers in the 120-mile race and the 13 mushers in the 40-miler set to finish later Sunday near Two Harbors.
