Biography

Tim Hunt, 49, was born and raised in the Detroit, Michigan area. He graduated from Michigan State University in 1989 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine and has served as a veterinarian on the Iditarod Race. He says he moved to Marquette to start his veterinary practice because it was “north.” He began mushing in 1993 and has run a number of races, including Le Grande Odyssée, Wyoming Stage Stop Race as well as the Iditarod. He will be running a team from Mitch Seavey’s kennel in this year’s Iditarod. Tim is a member of the AVMA, the AKVMA, the MIVMA and the ISDVMA. He was recently selected as America’s Favorite Veterinarian in an online competition. He is married to Mary and has one adult step son, Tom. Tim lists his hobbies as fishing and skiing.
