Bradley Farquhar

Hometown: Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, CANADA


Brad Farquhar, 31, was born and raised in Nova Scotia. He was introduced to dog mushing at the age of 8 while watching Iron Will at his grandmother’s house. “Seeing the young boy overcome the challenges of mushing and winning the big race, I knew I needed to try it. It was only a couple of years ago that I gave Sebastian Schnuelle a call and he gave me my first taste. After sledding with him for a week, I knew the Iditarod had to be my goal. Sebastian introduced me to Ken Anderson who took me under his wing and got me through all the qualifying races last season. I feel privileged to be running the Iditarod and am counting down the days to begin.”
