-DOG CLASSIC LINEUP #14 — Julia Larsen from HAILEY, IDAHO.

Julia entered her first dog sled race at age 8. In the past 3 years, however, she’s transitioned from junior class to pro class, although she’s usually the youngest of the pros. Julia and her dad, Troy Larsen, named their kennel Five Degrees because they believe it’s the perfect temperature to run dogs. Both donate a wheelchair to Free Wheelchair Mission for every first place finish they receive. Currently a senior in high school, Julia wants to pursue Neuroscience, Psychology, and Spanish. “Dog sledding has always brought me peace and has been a way for me to deal with all my stress. I’m so thankful to have grown up with this incredible sport.”
