Kinetic is proud to play significant role in feeding teams participating in the upcoming Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
The Iditarod (The world’s most famous sled dog race), is an annual long-distance race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome. The teams average 16 dogs, which means over 1,000 dogs leave Anchorage for Nome, covering the distance in 9–15 days or more. The Iditarod began in 1973 as an event to test the best sled dog mushers and teams. It has since evolved into today’s highly competitive race. Iditarod means clear water and was named by the Shageluk Indians for the Iditarod River.
Iditarod teams being fed Kinetic™ include:
• Nathan Schroder, 2014 Rookie of the Year
• Ray Redington, Team Redington (2-teams)
• Lance Mackey, Comeback Kennels (2-teams)
• Mushing Mortician / Team Janssen (2-teams/Barrington twins)
• Paul Gebhardt (2-teams/Barrington twins)
• Paul Kaiser
• Richie Diehl
• Karin Hendrickson
• Mike Supreant
“We began testing our Ultra 32 Formulation with a couple of select Mushing Teams in Northern Minnesota this past September, and the performance and recovery response time with the dogs was simply fantastic. The Mushing community, in particular, Mushers that participate in the Iditarod, have a communication network to the likes of something I have never seen before. Testimonials’ of Kinetic Ultra 32 preceded our outreach efforts and calls to other Mushers to introduce them to Ultra 32 became more of a “I need 100 bags to start” conversation.
In a very short period of time we have made a true impact on the sled dog community. No other K-9 Athlete is under more stress then a sled dog. Nutrition density is paramount due to the amount of calories these dogs burn while running, Ultra 32 is meeting the needs and demands of in this highly competitive sport and it is evident not only the number of teams feeding Kinetic but the quality of the teams.”
