Meet the 2024
Mushers

Alyssa Sabatino

Cook, mn

I recently moved to Cook, MN after living briefly in Wisconsin, and then Colorado for 8 years. I have two boys, age 7 and 4, who are growing up in the mushing world. I was previously running small dryland races, as well as sprint winter races, and am really excited to start digging my feet into more mid-distance mushing. I am grateful for all the friends I am making in Northern Minnesota, and all that I am learning regarding running more dogs… a lot more dogs. Mostly and most importantly, I am looking for a run where I can come “home” with happy and healthy dogs.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START RUNNING SLED DOGS AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED?

I wanted to run sleddogs since I was 4 years old and saw the movie Balto. I ended up starting in 2014 when I was 22 years old. I have been running for 9 years now.
