Jennifer LaBar

Bib Number: 13
Hometown: Healy, Alaska


I was born and raised in East Tennessee with bird dogs. I have always loved the outdoors and after hiking 1,000 miles on the Appalachian Trail one summer, I fell in love with long-distance adventures. In 2007 I came to Alaska and was introduced to sled dogs and long-distance racing and a dream was born. My first couple of winters in Alaska I worked for long-distance mushers learning the ropes and ultimately getting my first few dogs. Since 2015 I have been raising my own dogs and have completed several mid-distance races. My dream has been to run a 1,000-mile race with dogs I raised myself.
