Grayson Bruton

Hometown: Sterling, Alaska


Twenty-four-year-old Grayson Bruton was raised in Willow, Alaska. In 2000, he caught the mushing bug. Grayson’s father (a longtime Iditarod Volunteer) let him volunteer as a runner, helping park mushers and their teams at the restart in Willow. That’s all it took to get him hooked.
For the past six years, Grayson has been working for Mitch Seavey as a tour guide/manager at his Glacier operation in Seward and helping train Mitch’s team for the 2020 Iditarod. When he’s not training he likes to hunt and fish and climb mountains.
Grayson competed in the 2020 Iditarod placing 23rd, as well as a number of sprint races, the Jr Iditarod, Willow Jr 100, Willow 300, Copper Basin 300, and Tustemena 200.
