Biography

Noah Burmeister, 37, was born and raised in Nome, Alaska. He has chosen to stay in Alaska because, he says, “I enjoy the freedom and opportunities to live life to its fullest.” He went to University of Alaska-Fairbanks, where he studied Heavy Diesel Mechanics, Welding, Airframe and Power plant. He started mushing as soon as he could stand. He was born into a mushing family, with both his dad, Richard, and brother, Aaron, being Iditarod veterans. Noah says, “Getting back on the runners for the 2016 Iditarod was an incredible learning experience to get to know the dogs, the trail and how the race is being run. I am looking forward to taking the things that I learned last season and to improve on our finish during the 2017 Iditarod. The dogs, gear, diet, racing style and training methods have evolved so much in the last several years it keeps it fun and exciting to be involved and always trying to improve. We have an incredible team of dogs at Alaska Wildstyle Racing, people and sponsors that all lead to the success of our kennel and without whom we would not be able to continue to race. The ‘Last Great Race’ is one of the best events in the world. It brings together the state of Alaska and thousands of volunteers every year to make it happen. It is exciting to be part of it all.” Noah is a member of the IOFC and the IUOE. He loves his pet dog, Mr. Bo Jangles, and he enjoys hunting, fishing and boating in his spare time.
