Sky Harris

houghton, mi

 

My name is Sky Harris and I am from the Metro Detroit area. My sibling joined the Mushing Club at Michigan Tech 3 years ago and brought me along to the kennel every time I visited them. I had so much love for the dogs and when I got to ride a sled, it felt magical. This past summer I moved to the UP and started mushing dogs all the time. Along with mushing, I have competed in many other sports including lacrosse, where I went to Europe to compete in the Junior Olympics, and ice hockey. I have been training vigorously with the dogs and just competed in my first race at the 2023 Gunflint Mail Run. I’m looking forward to the challenge of the Beargrease 120 and crossing that finish line!

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

I was 21, and dogs are quite adorable.
