by | Mar 19, 2024 | Athlete of the Week, Sled Dog Racing

Mushing star Dallas Seavey is our Alaska Athlete of the Week.

The 37-year-old Talkeetna resident became the first person to win the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race six times.

Seavey and his team finished the 52nd Iditarod at 5:16pm on Tuesday, March 12th, in a time of 9 days, 2 hours, 16 minutes and 8 seconds.

He was previously tied with Rick Swenson for the most victories in the Last Great Race with five.

Seavey has now won six of the 13 Iditarods he’s competed in and has finished in no lower than 4th place in his last nine races.
