TOURS, EVENTS, AND FESTIVALS
John Beargrease Dog Sled Marathon
We’re a proud Mile-Marker Sponsor of the race. The marathon begins in Two Harbors.
The John Beargrease is “one of the most prestigious sled dog races” in the continental United States. Country Inn Two Harbors is the perfect place to see it for yourself!
Covering approximately four hundred miles, the route runs between Duluth and Grand Portage. Traditionally, the race is held annually during the last week of January.
John Beargrease was an Anishinabe man whose commitment to delivering mail between Two Harbors and Grand Marais (in winter by dog sled) proved to be a vital lifeline to the outside world for area residents. John did indeed engage a bear! Learn about the Legend of John Beargrease – observe this amazing race!
