Josi Thyr

Hometown: Fairbanks, Alaska


I began mushing as a kid in northern Idaho, eventually coming up to Alaska to handle for Aaron Burmeister and later handled for Jessie Royer in Montana. Iditarod was the dream since I was nine years old, after being inspired by LIbby Riddles’ book and in 2024 I completed my first Iditarod! This year I’m excited to come back to travel the Southern route. I’d like to thank my incredible friends, family and mushing family for helping me live a dream!
