Sioux Lookout, Ontario

I live in Sioux Lookout, Ontario. I’ve done property management for 30 years. I love being outdoors, and I enjoy my dogs. The Beargrease is one of my favorite races. I have 29 dogs in the kennel. I am hoping to have more time for the dogs in the near future.

I grew up on the prairies in Manitoba. Soon after moving to Ontario, a nurse at the hospital introduced us to sled dogs, and the adventures began. I’m hoping the border opens so that I can come and race the Beargrease in Minnesota. I have raced The Mail Run, the Beargrease 120, Midnight Run, and the Wolf Track Classic.

What other races have you completed to qualify for the marathon?

Beargrease 120
