You have to be a little crazy to race sled dogs. It’s the kind of hard, cold, exhilarating fun that we enjoy up here in northern Minnesota. And Iron Range native Nathan Schroeder is as crazy as anyone when it comes to sled dog racing.

He won the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon twice and at the end of June he travelled up to Wasilla, Alaska to enter the 2014 Iditarod.

Here’s what Nathan had to say about sled dog racing:

Every day since I was twelve, I envision myself racing the Iditarod. I’ve been raising, racing and building this dog team for this one special moment of my life, Iditarod 2014! I’m the current and 2x champion of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. My team is ready!

I gave up my youth and everything that goes along with it for my team and dogsledding! My dogs have built a life for me that I will never regret. I was born and raised on the Iron Range of Minnesota, I work in the mines.  I’m married and have three children all under 3-1/2. The timing is right for me to race the Iditarod.

To me, the Iditarod is the easy part but the financial logistic is the most difficult part of the Iditarod. We are seeking sponsors and fundraising to afford this trip to Iditarod.

Happy Trails, Nathan

If you would like help Nathan get to the Iditarod, check out his GoFundMe page. Good luck, Nathan!
