Minn.'s Beargrease sled dog race postponed

Posted:

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- Poor snow conditions have forced organizers to postpone the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon in northeastern Minnesota.

The race had been scheduled to start Jan. 27. It's now postponed until March 10.

Race coordinator Pat Olson tells the Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/X2Owql) that the trail is "terrible."

Olson says organizers are hoping for snow by March 10. If it doesn't snow, the race could face only its third cancellation ever.

A lack of snow caused the Beargrease board of directors to cancel last year's races. It also was canceled in 2007.
