Jason Mackey

Hometown: Knik, Alaska


I have been running and racing sled dogs for 45 years and have run Iditarod seven times, the K-300, Kobuk 440, Copper Basin 300, Knik 200, Tustemena 200, Tug 120, Klondike 300, Yukon Quest 300, Two Rivers 200 , Mail Trail 120, and of course four Jr. Iditarods. After 2017 Iditarod I sold my kennel and two and a half years later I started the kennel over with a whole new group. I’m very excited to be back to Iditarod and the races. Pushing the re-set button was the best thing I could have done. I’m running Iditarod and the mid-distance races again with a whole new team and a whole new me. Kennel motto: “Mack is Back”.
