Biography

Victoria Hardwick, 33, was born and raised in Colville, Washington. Growing up, she spent almost all her time outside adventuring with her copper-colored dog, Beau. She says that they did everything together. He was her first “small” sled dog pulling her around on roller blades. Neither of them were great at stopping. Many things changed for her over the years but her love of dogs and being outside and adventuring always remained constant. “I can’t imagine a more perfect adventure than racing across Alaskan wilderness with my four-legged family in ‘The Last Great Race.’” She received her BS in Biology from Gonzaga University and then went to the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Five years ago, after finishing dental school in Seattle, Victoria moved to Alaska to mush sled dogs and practice public health dentistry in the Bush. She began mushing in 2014 and became interested in running the Iditarod that winter. Victoria lists her hobbies as hiking, fishing and exploring.
