Join us for coverage of the 2022 John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon, January 30-February 2.

Nail-biter to the end: Erin Letzring wins the 37th running of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon!

Veteran handler but first time musher Erin Letzring sprinted across the finish line for her first Beargrease Marathon win, followed literally three seconds later by two-time Beargrease champ Ryan Redington.

Both Letzring and Redington had lousy snow and trail conditions, and temperatures too warm for sled dogs to run comfortably.

Plus they both had teams that - briefly - said "enough."

Make sure to join us tomorrow morning at 8am for John Stetson's wrap-up of the race.  He was there at the end and we'll talk with him more about what he called "The most amazing finish I've ever seen in Minnesota."
