Biography

Wade Marrs, 26, was born and raised in the Knik area outside of Wasilla, Alaska. “I could mush before I could walk.” Wade says, “I’ve wanted to run the Iditarod for as long as I an remember. I grew up around the Redington family in Knik and they played a big role in my mushing career. My uncle had a team of his own and showed me the ropes. When he passed away, I took over running the dogs. I enjoy mushing because of the awesome bond I have with my dogs, the time alone with them on the trail and the sights we get to see together. We are always looking for ways to improve our finishing position and look forward to someday winning the Iditarod.” In 2014, he moved to Willow for better training opportunities and to expand his growing kennel. He is the owner of Sawtooth Sled Dog Tours. When he is not mushing, Wade enjoys hunting, fishing, running and exploring Alaska with Sophie and our Irish Wolfhound.
