Ryan Redington, 38 has been running dogs since he could reach the handle bars. My grandfather is Joe Redington Sr. He is known as the ‘Father of the Iditarod’ for starting the race in 1973. My dad is Raymie who has raced in the Iditarod 14 times. My grandpa, dad and uncle Joee are all in the Mushing Hall of Fame. Ryan has run many races across Alaska, including the 2019 Kobuk 440 which he won, and the lower 48 states. "I am racing Iditarod because I love the Iditarod and the dogs. I got big footsteps to follow and am glad to be racing in the 2021 Iditarod." Read more here.
