Volunteers needed for 2019 Great Bear Chase Ski Marathon, March 9

Hi everyone,

We’re looking for volunteers for the 38th annual UP Health System Great Bear Chase, which will take place Saturday, March 9, 2019, at Swedetown trails in Calumet. There are many positions open on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday of race week, including:

  • Packet stuffing
  • Helping at aid stations
  • Stadium set-up
  • Registration
  • Back-up timing
  • Finish line attendants
  • Banquet assistants
  • Parking attendants

And more. 

Last year’s race drew more than 700 skiers, so we need lots of help. The event once again features the 50k Skiathlon in addition to 50k, 25k or 10k Freestyle or Classic races. If you are interested and have an hour or two or more, simply click on the link below and complete the short form. Our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you. 


Please consider being part of this great community event!
