 For First Time In 50 Years Native Alaskan Mushers Win Top Three Spots In Iditarod

Ryan Redington, grandson of Joe Redington, "Father of the Iditarod," has won the 2023 Iditarod Sled Dog Race. He arrived in Nome after 8 days, 21 hours, 13 minutes on the trail. 

Ryan, who is Inupiaq, led two other Native mushers in the top three spots over the finish line. He was trailed by Peter Kaiser, who is Yup'ik, and who came in second at 8 days, 22 hours, 36 minutes.

In third place was Richie Diehl, Denai'na Athabaskan, who came in an hour after Kaiser, at 8 days, 23 hours, 40 minutes. 

Ryan comes from two heritages, both of which are tied to dog races. 
Dog racing was a popular springtime sport in Native villages for many years.
Ryan is also a member of the storied Redington Family. 

His grandfather, Joe Redington, Sr., founded the Iditarod Race in 1973 in Knik — to keep mushing alive in the face of the popularity of the snow machine. 
Seven Remingtons have raced in the Iditarod over the years.
