Biography

Allen Moore, 59, was born and raised in Northeast Arkansas where he received a degree in Biology from Arkansas State University. He worked as a carpenter and taxidermist there before moving to Alaska over 20 years ago. He says it was too hot in Arkansas so he drove with his family to Alaska. He began mushing about twenty years ago and had competed in sprint races and in many mid distance races around the State before he ran his first Iditarod in 2007. ”I race the Yukon Quest in February and then when the first weekend in March arrives, our kennel clears out because we try to race ALL of our dogs in the Iditarod. My goal is to have a group of young SP Kennel dogs become an educated, working dog team by the end of the Iditarod. The goal is to finish the Race with as many strong dogs as possible, so they will be prepared for future years of racing competitively. After a young dog crosses the finish line in Nome, it is mentally ‘unstoppable’. It’s a great thing to witness in these youngsters. I might not have the fastest time to Nome, but it is one of the most rewarding!” Allen lives in Two rivers, Alaska with his wife Aliy Zirkle, also an Iditarod veteran and competitor in 2017. He enjoys fishing, hunting and playing with grand kids. Allen has two adult children, Bridget and Jennifer.
