Dallas is one of the hardest working people we have ever met. 356 Days out of the year Dallas breeds, raises and trains arguably the best sled dogs in the world, the other days are spent competing in and winning the 1,000-mile Iditarod Trail Dog Sled Race. Alaska born & bred, Dallas is the reigning champion, four time winner and the current record holder in the Last Great Race on Earth.
Dallas grew up helping his father (who ran his first Iditarod in 1982 and has competed every year since 1995) raise and train Iditarod winning (2004 & 2013) sled dogs. Understanding the level of commitment needed to build a world class dog team, Dallas brought the fierce competitiveness he used to win the National Championship in greco-roman wrestling to dog sled mushing. Dallas then added some science and Alaskan ingenuity to how sled dogs were trained and raised. He went on to win his first iditarod at the age of 25 (youngest ever) and has won four out of the last five years (his father won again in 2013). He has also won the Yukon Quest making him one of only 6 mushers to win both the Yukon Quest and Iditarod. Though Dallas may be best know for his achievements, 1620 has partnered with him for how hard he works throughout the year. His ranch currently has 90+ sled dogs, each of which is raised personally by Dallas.
