Biography

Sigrid Ekran, 36, was born and raised in Sparbu, Norway. She lived in Alaska from 2003 to 2008 and received her Master’s Degree from UAF in Northern Studies. She began running dogs in 2006 while she lived in Fairbanks and became interested in the Iditarod when she “got two dogs from Team Norway after the 2004 Race.” She ran the Iditarod twice before moving back to Norway to race in Europe. In Europe she ran La Grande Odyssey in 2009, the Femondsløpet in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014, winning in 2011, and the Finnmarksløpet in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015, winning in both 2014 and 2015. She says her current occupation is “Expedition guide and wildlife management.” Her hobbies are hiking, hunting and coffee drinking.
