The Great Bear Chase ski race will be March 5th this year, and as always, will showcase both our area’s wonderful trails and people. The event requires the dedication and support of over 100 community volunteers.
Foremost among the favorites will be Caitlin Gregg (Minneapolis, MN), going for her fourth Birkebeiner women’s title. Gregg won in 2011 (where she broke the Women’s 50K Skate course record), 2013 and 2014.
Michael Davis made it a double victory this weekend, winning Saturday's North American Vasa 27km classic and Sunday's 16km Gran Travers Classic. And Rebecca Davis took no prisoners in the women's division, finishing first with a 10 minute lead.
The Copper Country Ski Tigers won the overall Michigan State High School Cross Country Ski Championship title by taking first in the boys and third in the girls competition. Marquette Senior was second overall. TC Central won the girls title.
