Live Coverage of the

Ifan sports network

During the race the iFan Sports Network has live coverage of the start, the BG 120 finish, the Marathon finish, and several of the checkpoints in between.  iFan has covered this race and others for many years and shares deep knowledge and valuable insights into competitive mushing, and often has interesting interviews with mushers or others involved in the race. 


After the race if you feel like you just can’t wait until next year, you can always go back to the iFan archives and rewatch some of their extensive coverage of the Beargrease.
