Ramey SmythBib Number: 38
Hometown: Willow, Alaska
Ramey Smyth, 38, was born and raised in Alaska, the son of Iditarod veterans Bud Smyth and the late Lolly Medley. His father, Bud Smyth, raced in the first Iditarod, and his mother, Lolly Medley, raced in the second Iditarod. Ramey has lived all over the State and says he moved to Willow to put down roots and build a home for his wife and children. He says he’s been mushing since he was “born.” He ran the Jr. Iditarod twice and won both times. He ran his first Iditarod in 1994 and has only skipped one year since. He is a log builder and dog musher. He says that his hobbies are family and all sports. “I love that my family can be so involved in this sport as they all love dogs. I would like to bring awareness to the need for cancer research funding. I am running under the banner of abstinence from drugs and alcohol.” Ramey and his wife, Rebecca, are the parents of Ava, 7 and Banyan, 3.
