Although the starting and finish line changed and no spectators were allowed at this year's race, COVID-19 did not cancel this year's John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. Two females were crowned champions in both the Beargrease 120 and the marathon.

Erin Schouweiler repeated as the mid-distance champion. She finished just before 6 A.M. at Trestle Inn. She passed Michael Bestgen on the final leg to earn the victory.

In the marathon, Erin Letzring finished just 7 second before the defending Beargrease champion Ryan Redington. Letzring crossed the finish line at Mineral Center at 6:20 P.M. Tuesday evening.
