Pete Kaiser

“Three-Pete” year: Lifelong musher, leader of the pack at Kaiser Racing Kennel and eight-time Iditarod racer, Pete recently won his third Kuskokwim 300 race.

Nome or bust: Memories from the trail include sleep deprivation and 60-below-zero temps. “The Iditarod is about as Alaskan as you can get.”

Team Kaiser: His hometown of Bethel is tight-knit and supportive. “People stand beside you regardless of the outcome. That community support alone is a reward.” 

Whether you were born and raised in Alaska or just have the Alaska born and raised spirit, we want to hear from you.
