BG Marathon Wade Marrs

Wade Marrs

Knik, AK

I was born and raised in the Knik area outside of Wasilla, Alaska and have been behind a dog team since I was born. The biggest influences for my mushing are my late uncle and the Redingtons. I was a quiet kid, learning the ropes of mushing, not asking many questions, just listening to words of advice from the many mushers visiting the Redington home in Knik. I have served on the Iditarod’s Board of Directors and as the IOFC president, I look forward to continuing being an advocate for the mushing lifestyle and the future of this sport. Moving from Alaska to Wisconsin fall of 2021. Looking forward to meeting all in the Lower 48 mushing communities and participating in this new racing circuit. When I’m not with my dog team I like to adventure, fish, hunt, build, and spend time with my wife Sophie and our son Mack.

The “goodest” dogs
Need your help

What a sled dog looks forward to most after a long day of racing is a nice bed of straw! But guess what happened at last year’s race? Someone stole all our straw right before the race start! Thankfully, great fans like you helped us out during the final hour to provide this vital supply for our amazing dogs.

These dogs simply are the best – and we want to be able to continue treating them that way! Donations from fans like you make that possible. Would you find it in your heart to help us out? No amount is too small in sled dog world!
