Biography

Aaron Peck, 38, was born in Cobourg, Ontario. He received his diploma in Agriculture from the University of Guelph. He began mushing in 1992 and says “I was hooked when I saw on ABC Wide World of Sports Susan Butcher winning the Iditarod.” He ran his rookie Iditarod in 2000 with Martin Buser’s yearlings and has since run the race three more times. He won the 2017 Canadian Challenge and the 2013 Wyoming Stage Stop Race. For the last nine years, Aaron has been a bison ranch manager. Aaron and his wife, Eva, and children, Clancy, 3, and Sunny, 1, all run Elevation Dogs, a dog boarding, dog day care, sled dog tour and sled dog racing kennel in Bezanson, Alberta. Aaron says, “I am excited to once again have the opportunity to compete in this great race, and I hope to be competitive in the Iditarod for years ahead.” They would like to thank all their friends, family, the Elevation Dog Crew and especially their sponsors for their support throughout the year.
