DULUTH - Hundreds of spectators attended the start of the 36th annual John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. Although many were drawn to see an electric race, some attended for tradition.

With temperatures in the 20s on Sunday morning, Jan. 26, the grounds outside Billy's bar in Duluth were full of hundreds of people meeting dogs, mushers, handlers and teammates - all less than an hour away from the start of the races.
