I ran the Beargrease Cub race when I was 5, I have run every Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race since then, the Spirit Mountain Sprint race, and the Northern Pines Sled Dog Race twice. I won the Jr. Iditarod in 2021, thanks to my coach, Ryan Redington and Talia my sister. I am here to compete in the Jr Beargrease and hope to compete in the Jr Iditarod again.
Martens Mushing on Facebook
I started mushing when i was still in diapers. My sister, Talia and my mom are both mushers. I love dogs!
What a sled dog looks forward to most after a long day of racing is a nice bed of straw! But guess what happened at last year’s race? Someone stole all our straw right before the race start! Thankfully, great fans like you helped us out during the ﬁnal hour to provide this vital supply for our amazing dogs.
These dogs simply are the best – and we want to be able to continue treating them that way! Donations from fans like you make that possible. Would you ﬁnd it in your heart to help us out? No amount is too small in sled dog world!
