The Iditarod is known as the last great race. It is an Alaskan dog sled race and recognized as a world class sporting event with the best mushers from around the world participating every year. The race starts in Anchorage and ends in Nome – spanning over 1,000 miles. Aaron has successfully competed in the Iditarod 17 previous times, finishing 10th, 7th, 4th and 3rd in his last 4 races.
Aaron was born and raised in Nome, Alaska, and married to Sitnasuak Native Corporation Shareholder Amanda (Michels) – daughter of Betty Ann Hoogendorn. According to Aaron, “My life has revolved around dog racing since childhood, and for the last 25 years I have been raising a competitive kennel of Alaskan racing huskies with one goal in mind: to be an Iditarod Champion.”
