Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - According to race officials, Greger crossed the finish line at eight this morning, with a total time of 6:52:58 on the trail.

Greger was followed by Winsconsinites Erin Altemus (2nd) and Martha Schouweiler (3rd).

The full–length Beargrease race is still on, however, and teams are reporting into the Gunflint Trail checkpoint as we speak.

Currently, Wisconsinite Andrew Letzring is still reported as in the lead after checking into the Gunflint Trail checkpoint shortly before 4 PM. He is followed by Nathan Schroeder (2nd) from Chisolm, and Keith Aili
(3rd) from Ray.

Temperatures dropping into the lower 20's Monday Morning helped make the trail more canine–friendly, say officials.
