Knik, AK

I was inspired by my family. My Grandpa is Joe Redington Sr. Joe is the founder of the Iditarod. He raced in the Beargrease Marathon when I was young child and was always excited about the Beargrease. My Great Grandfather Frank Ryan delivered mail by dog team in Alaska. My Dad Raymie, my Uncle Joee and my Grandpa Joe are all inducted in the Mushers hall of fame. We had a great year racing last year, we are the current 2023 Iditarod champions. I am excited to be back racing my friends in the Beargrease.

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

Ryan has been a dog musher since he was a toddler! Growing up, he and his brother would run home from school to each hook up a team of dogs, then race down trail and back again! Whomever lost would have to do the majority of the poop-scooping, so the incentive to perform well was instilled at an early age.
