Biography

Aaron Burmeister, 43, was born and raised in Nome, Alaska. He graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and has worked in construction for the last 25 years. “I have been racing the Iditarod for 25 years and have been raising dogs my entire life. Iditarod is an event that brings the state of Alaska together every year to celebrate the rich history of dog mushing and its role in developing travel through Alaska, from delivering mail to transporting gold miners, and hauling wood, ice and checking traplines. Thousands of people come together each year to help put on this great event, so that we, as mushers, can participate. It is an honor to be on the trail to see old friends and make new ones. As a musher, it is no easy task to get to the starting line and I would like to thank my family for allowing me to do it and my partner, Tony Brownng, and Marian, for making it possible.” Aaron is married to Mandy and they are the parents of Hunter, 10, and Kiana, 6. Aaron is a member of the IUOE, AGC, IOFC, AOPA and the ITC. He lists his hobbies as flying, hunting, fishing and time with family.
