Biography

Nathan Schroeder, 38, was born and raised in Warba, Minnesota. He graduated from Mesabi Range Community and Technical College in 1999 as a maintenance mechanic. He has worked as a millwright in Local 1348 for the last 16 years. Nathan was introduced to mushing at the age of 12, when he was given a ride at an elementary school behind a team of malamutes. He has raced numerous races in the “lower 48.” He is a three time champion of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon and a rookie of the year in the Iditarod. He says, “It’s always been a dream to run the Iditarod. This will be my 3rd race. After last years’ race at the finish line, I absolutely need to return! So here we go again!” Nathan has been married eight years to Carey, and they are the parents of three: Gavin, 5, Sawyer, 3 and Kinley, 2. He says that Carey barrel races during the summer, and he does dog races in the winter and, in the meantime, they are “happy raising children.” He enjoys fishing, fishing and more fishing!!!
