Karen Ramstead: The first Canadian woman to complete the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, Karen Ramstead has run “The Last Great Race on Earth” 11 times, finishing in 2001, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2012.

Her distinctive “pretty sled dogs” are Canadian kennel club-registered, purebred Siberian Huskies. Her race team includes several champions, proving that working dogs can be winners in the show ring too.

Known for exceptional dog care, Karen has taken that dedication beyond the trail. She has served as President of the sled dog organization, Mush with PRIDE, which is devoted to promoting humane care of working sled dogs and chaired the Kennel Standards Committee for the Iditarod that set mandatory standards for mushers running the event.

Prior to retiring from racing in 2016 Karen was involved with the Iditarod Trail Committee and Yukon Quest International Rules Committees, so it was a natural that she turned to judging to keep involved and give back to a sport that means so much to her.

She has been a judge on the Iditarod in 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2018. She is also the current Chair of the Yukon Quest Rules Committee and serves on the Race Qualifying Board for the Iditarod.
