The Mushers... Akela's Den

Akela's Den Mushers

Stefaan has been standing on the runners for more than 10 years. He has run many mid-distance races in Canada over those years, finishing often in the top 5.He always manages to get the best out of a team. He and his dog team are now eager to try additional races, some of which will include races in the US.

Bart finished his rookie year with a victory in the 6-dog Canadian Challenge. Yet, he realizes that he still has a lot to learn! Ran our main team in 2009 to victory in his two qualifying races. In the winter of 2010 he realised our dream by becoming the first saskatchewan musher to ever enter AND finish worlds thoughest sled dog race called The Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race.

Tanja has been on the runners for more than 10 years guiding for Sundogs Sled Excursions. She is not shy of entering our local races and blowing everyone away, often with a young team. She places in the top every time. Hope one day we can convince her to run the 12 dog Challenge!
