Wally Robinson

Bib Number: 39
Hometown: Nenana, Alaska
Meet the Dog Team:


Walter Robinson is running Josh McNeal’s dog team in the 2024 lditarod. Josh was planning on
racing to Nome until an injury put him on the sidelines. Josh needed a musher to take his place
and asked his friend Wally if he would run the team. Wally will be running with the goal of giving
Josh and Jobie a happy, healthy dog team at the finish line. Wally is looking forward to traveling
one of the best trails in the world with an awesome team of dogs.

Wally moved to Alaska in 1999 to run the 2001 lditarod and never left. He and his wife Alissa
live in Nenana, AK, with their two children Emily and Stanley. Wally turned his dog team over to
his daughter Emily to support her as she grew her racing career. He races when he can, but for
many years his focus has been coaching his kids. When not mushing, the family travels to their
remote cabin, fishes, hunts and explores Alaska.
