JOHN BEARGREASE SLED DOG MARATHON

Second grade, and some third grade, students at North Shore Community School near Duluth have been learning about dog sledding over the last month and their lesson culminated on Friday, Feb. 18, 2022 with the 15th year of the "Ikidarod." The students pretended to be sled dog teams and raced on the school's nature trail, stopping at checkpoints as family and fellow students cheered them on.
Anderson also won the race in 2017, 2015 and 2011.
Eleven of 24 mushers remained in the race Tuesday afternoon.
The 300-mile marathon started at Billy's bar in Duluth at 10 a.m. Sunday. Mushers are expected to arrive Tuesday at the finish at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino.
