Shannon BrockmanBib Number: 75
Hometown: Nenana, Alaska
Thirty-four year old, Shannon Brockman, was born on December 29, 1969 in Ontario, Canada. She graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Commerce.
“I live with 42 dogs and my husband, Andy Elsberg, outside of Nenana. I first started running dogs in Yellowknife, NWT with a trapline team and came to Fairbanks to get my geology degree from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and check out the Alaska dog scene.
In the summer I work as an exploration geologist out of Yellowknife. Our dog teams is a mix of bloodlines, mostly trotters and they have always gotten us where we wanted to go. I have some Quest veterans and a number of younger dogs. I want to run the Iditarod to see the trail and give the dogs a positive 1,000 mile race experience.”
Shannon’s interest in the Iditarod was sparked when she made a personal dog sled trip to Nome in 2000. In 1999, she finished 13th in the Percy deWolfe, in the Yukon Quest 250 in 2000, she finished 3rd; in 2001 she finished 2nd in the Denali 300 and in 2002, she finished 10th in the Yukon Quest.
Shannon is a member of MUSH WITH PRIDE and lists her hobbies as skiing, climbing and biking.
