Ryne Olson

Hometown: Two Rivers, Alaska


Ryne Olson was raised in Durango, Colorado. Five years ago, she moved to Alaska to pursue dog mushing at SP Kennels. She worked with Aliy Zirkle and Allen Moore and in 2012, ran a team for SP Kennels in the Iditarod. It was then that she knew what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. I’ve always loved dogs and the outdoors and I’m so happy I stumbled upon this incredible sport. There’s no bond quite like the one between a dog team and their musher. I’ve raised almost all of the Ryno Kennel canine athletes from puppyhood and find immense enjoyment in being a part of their lives. We’re excited to race the 2021 Iditarod and test ourselves against Mother Nature and some of the top dog teams in the world.
