The Beargrease is a sled dog race that starts in Duluth is run on the rugged Sawtooth Mountains along the North Shore of Lake Superior in Northeastern Minnesota, up the historic Gunflint Trail and finishes back in Duluth. The trail follows that of it's namesake, John Beargrease, a Grand Portage Chippewa who delivered the mail along the North Shore from 1887 to 1900.  The Beargrease is known for being the toughest race in the lower 48 as the terrain is almost a constant "up and down".  It is known for being tough on dogs because the steep downhills can be tough on their joints.  It has been said by top contenders of the Iditarod that the Beargrease is harder to finish than the 1,200 mile Iditarod.
