Biography

Ray Redington, Jr., 39, was born and raised in Alaska. The grandson of Iditarod co-founder, Joe Redington, Sr. and son of Iditarod veteran, Raymie Redington, Ray says that he’s been mushing since he can remember. “Iditarod has always been around my family.” After running the Jr. Iditarod several times, he took a break from mushing. He began racing again in 2000. He is married to the former Julia Flodin, daughter of Iditarod veteran, Steve Flodin. They lived in Two Rivers for nine years and then moved back to Knik to be closer to family. Ray and Julia’s daughter, Ellen, will be nine during the 2015 Iditarod and son, Isaac, will be six in December of this year. Ray says he enjoys hunting and fishing. He lists his occupation as “dog musher.”
