Ryan Redington, born into the Redington family and growing up, was pretty doggy. My Grandpa, Joe Redington, started the Iditarod. It’s pretty awesome carrying on the tradition of racing and seeing my own kids race in the Beargrease Cub Run as well. My Dad, Raymie, got inducted into the mushers hall of fame as well as my Grandpa Joe and my Uncle Joe. My Grandpa Joe raced the Beargrease years ago. Last year, we had an awesome race in the Beargrease. My goal is to be competitive and use this race as a training run for my team for the Iditarod. Thanks to all the fans and all the volunteers that help put on the Beargrease.
