Not sure if any bears have woken up yet, but if they have—they might get chased by cross country skiers tomorrow.
The 35th annual Great Bear Chase will be held on the Swedetown Trails in Calumet Saturday.
The ski marathon presented by U.P. Health-Portage features several race formats including 50 kilometers to 25k or 10k events that are perfect for skiers of all levels.
Health and Fitness Manager Angela Luskin says new this year is a Skiathlon–a 25k classic/25k skate skiing event.
These races are traditionally thought of as one of the last great events of the winter, and it’s another reason why the Great Bear Chase is so popular.
