Join us March 7, 2020, in Calumet, Michigan for the 40th anniversary Great Bear Chase. The UP Health System Great Bear Chase Ski Marathon has something for everyone and enough snow to go around, even in March! The Great Bear Chase has earned a reputation as a skier-oriented weekend that allows skiers of all experience levels to finish their season with a high quality event. With exciting races in both techniques ranging from 10km to 50km, the premier event is the 50km skiathlon. All events are chip timed, and compete on beautiful power tilled trails. After the race, make it to the Pasty Feed, where we’ll serve up fresh, award-winning pasties, bakery items, gluten-free soup and refreshments.
Concept2 was founded by Dick and Peter Dreissigacker in 1976. Fresh from Olympic training, the two brothers designed and manufactured carbon fiber racing oars, then went on to create the world’s first air-resistance indoor rower. The SkiErg, launched in 2009, builds upon Concept2’s years of experience in designing and manufacturing high-performance training equipment. For more information about Concept2, visit concept2.com.
