Biography

Peter Fleck, 27, was born and raised in Southwest England with plenty of opportunity to get outdoors and explore, and this has been a major focus of his life ever since. “I first came to Alaska in 2009, having just left school and was looking for adventure. I was hugely fortunate to meet Iditarod veteran, GB Jones at that time, and as a result of his generosity and encouragement, I started my mushing journey! I have been given the opportunity to run the race this year by Mitch and Janine Seavey. I will be running a team of Mitch’s two year olds. These youngsters represent the future of Mitch’s kennel, and it is a huge responsibility and an enormous privilege to be running them. I hope that our race this year will set up these young dogs to succeed in the future.” Peter says he is a “jack of all trades and master of none.”
