Aspen KellyHometown: Wasilla, Alaska
Aspen 15, started mushing in 2016 after her family helped Newton Marshal prepare for the 2014 Iditarod. This will be her first race. Not only will this be her first time running the Jr. Iditarod, but it will also be her dad’s first time running Iditarod, so they will be spending a lot of time this winter training together. She says she enjoys wrestling, drama/theater, reading, yoga and roller skating. She plans to go to college and study Early Childhod Education and continue running sled dogs.
