#14 — Tom Thurston from Oak Creek, Colorado.

For the past two years, Tom handled for his oldest daughter Greta before she headed off to college. “I’m back on the runners and looking forward to competing with an amazing group of young dogs that Greta and I spent the last four years breeding and training into the best looking and most talented group of dogs I have ever had the pleasure to run.” Over the past ten years he’s traveled tens of thousands of miles training and racing, and has won many races as well as veterinary and sportsmanship awards. Tom competed in the 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Iditarods. Today his focus is on sharing what he loves with visitors to Steamboat Springs Dog Sledding.
