With the safety of the mushers, dogs and many volunteers at the forefront of the boards minds, poor snow conditions will not allow the race to be safely ran.

The Beargrease Board and members would like to thank its many sponsors, volunteers and mushers for their continued support of the race. As of this time the race had a fantastic field of racers who will be back next year to

compete on the North Shore trail, Kilichowski wrote.

While the race will not be running, the other race week

events will continue. A Gala and Silent Auction event will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Greysolon Ballroom. Followed by the ever popular cutest puppy contest at 11 a.m. Jan. 28 at Fitger's.

The Beargrease Board would like to thank the community of Duluth and the entire North Shore for their support of this premier winter event.
