Logan McCready-DeBruinBib Number: 6
Hometown: Haliburton, ONT, CANADA
I am the oldest of 4 children having a younger brother and 2 little sisters. Besides my mom & dad, the rest of our family is made up of 150 Purebred Siberian Huskies and 6 cats. My parents moved to the wilderness of Haliburton, Ontario to start Winterdance Dogsled Tours the fall I was born and while my parents built our log home we lived our first winter in the office/gear room of the kennel, so the dogs have been my family since I was born! They spend their whole lives with us and with very few exceptions my brother, sisters & I have raised all the dogs we have now from puppies.
I was riding a dogsled as a baby, but ran my first race at 3 years of age and have raced ever since. My brother & sisters all race too. My parents tell me I set the goal to run Junior Iditarod when I was 5, having watched my Dad chase his dream to run Iditarod as long as I can remember. Our whole family was at the start line in Anchorage and the finish line in Nome when he completed that dream several years ago and I got to drive his tag sled for the ceremonial start. Last year I helped my Dad train his Yukon Quest team and I will do so again this year as we share the race team dogs. Most of the dogs that will likely be on my team will have run 5 Yukon Quests/Iditarods with my Dad and are all related to each other. I look forward to fulfilling my goal of running the Junior Iditarod and also the 4000 mile drive across Canada with my dogs, dad & Uncle to get to the start line!
Logan is a senior at Haliburton Highlands Secondary School. He participates in badminton and the book club. He also enjoys karate and sailing. After he finishes high school, he plans to continue running dogs and to get a pilot’s license and fly helicopters.
