The Beargrease Marathon began today and mushers are in for some warmer than normal mushing conditions. Some years they face sub-zero temperatures but this year the forecast calls for daytime temperatures to be near 30 degrees. This is a little warm for mushing because the snow on the trail will be soft. Teams are expected to do most of their travel at night when the temperatures drop below freezing. This year they have live tracking of teams and they even include a photo of the musher. Find out more information about both the 300 mile and 120 mile event online.
