Josi ThyrHometown: Fairbanks, Alaska
I started racing sled dogs in Idaho as a kid but always dreamed of doing the Iditarod. As a teenager I came up (to Alaska) and handled for Aaron Burmeister, then began working on qualifiers. Eventually I handled for Jessie Royer in Montana and completed my qualifiers. In the spring of 2023 I moved to Fairbanks and I’m very excited to be on my way to completing a twenty-year dream!
