Jeff Deeter

Hometown: Fairbanks, Alaska
Meet the Dog Team:


Jeff Deeter, 32, started mushing at the age of 15. After completing his first Iditarod in 2008, Jeff took ten years away from the race. In that time, he met his wife, KatieJo, built a home in Fairbanks, and started a tour business, Black Spruce Dog Sledding.
After following and analyzing years of Iditarod races, Jeff has made it his goal to run competitively. Finishing 15th and 16th in the last two races, he is planning to take his team to a faster, and more competitive finish in the years to come. “But more than anything, what matters to me is experiencing the trail with my dogs, and living this unique dream. The Iditarod is unlike any other event, and running this trail, with my four legged friends, is truly amazing!”
