Biography

Morgan Martens, 14, says he was born into a mushing family and was on the runners as soon as he was able. An 8th grader at Northwestern Middle School in Maple, Wisconsin, Morgan participates in basketball, baseball, track, cross country, band and choir. In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, wood working in 4H, riding my horse, camping and hunting. “We live on a farm in rural Wisconsin. My sister Talia (who ran Jr. Iditarod in 2018, train 20 huskies for racing and recreation. We share in their care. We also have four horses that we ride and drive. We ae active in the Gitchie Gumi 4H club and give dog sled rides to our club every year. We have given rides to friends from China, Mexico, India, Russia, the local girl scouts and our postmaster We love sharing the sport of mushing with others. I have run numerous sled dog races in this area and am registered for the Jr. Beargrease in 2021. I hope to have 1,000 training miles on my dogs before that race. This year I am super lucky to be learning from Ryan Redington. He is generous, kind and teaches by example. I am privileged to be chosen to run his amazing dog team in the Jr. Iditarod. This is the opportunity of a lifetime and I am very grateful to Ryan.”
