North Wapiti Kennels has successfully completed the 1000+ mile Iditarod Sled Dog race in 2001, 2004 and 2006 using only purebred Siberian Huskies. The North Wapiti team finished the 2001 race with more dogs than any other Iditarod 2001 team, being the only team to finish with 15 of the 16 dogs that started the race. During the 2004 race, despite a broken sled, the team was able to better their personal best finish time by over two and a half days! Their finish time was the third fastest in Iditarod history for a purebred Siberian Husky team.
