Ryan Redington

Hometown: Knik, Alaska


Born into the mushing family, Ryan proudly carries on the family legacy of running dogs, racing, raising awareness for the sport of dog sledding and advocating for Alaska Native values. His grandfather, Joe Redington Sr., is known as the ‘Father of the Iditarod’ for co-founding the 1,000 mile race in 1973, and helping to establish the route as a national historic trail. A dedicated heir of the sport, Ryan has been mushing ever since he could hold onto the sled, and has excelled at sprint and marathon sled dog races across the Midwest and Alaska.

Ryan is the 2023 Iditarod Champion. He is also the 2019 and 2021 Champion of the Kobuk 440 in Kotzebue, Alaska.
