Biography

Wade Marrs, 28, was born and raised in the Knik area outside of Wasilla, Alaska. “I have been behind a dog team since I was born.” The biggest influences for his mushing were his late uncle and the Redingtons. Wade says, “I was a quiet kid, learning the ropes of mushing, not asking many questions, just listening to words of advice from the many mushers visiting the Redington home in Knik.” Having now served on the Iditarod’s Board of Directors and as the IOFC president, I look forward to continuing being an advocate for the mushing lifestyle and the future of this sport.” Wade moved to Willow in 2014 to expand his growing kennel and for better training opportunities. When he isn’t with his dog team, Wade likes to adventure, fish, hunt, build and spending time with his fiancée, Sophie.
