Whiteout Racing Kennel LLC is owned and run by Junior Musher, Christina Gibson. Age seventeen, she’s going into her fifth season training and racing sled dogs, and has competed in the Pacific Northwest, Inland Northwest, Rocky Mountain States, and Alaska.
At the age of four, after watching Universal Pictures' cartoon movie ‘Balto’, she decided she wanted to run, and win, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Her mother understandably assumed it was a passing fantasy. When she ran a dog for the first time at the age of 12, Christina was immediately hooked. “I was only allowed to get two dogs at first, but that number has grown each year to build the race team that I have now.” Christina plans on moving into mid-distance competitive racing. Her team raced in the 2018 Jr. Iditarod, a 150 mile race in Alaska meant for teens 14-17 years of age, and after spending 30 hours, 34 minutes, and 50 seconds on the trail, came away with Red Lantern honors, the Sportsmanship Award, a $2,000 scholarship, and unforgettable memories. Her main goal is to compete in and win the world famous, Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, a 1,000 mile dog race through Alaska’s wilderness.
Whiteout Racing Kennel strives to stand for honest and quality dog care and racing.
Christina hopes to eventually produce a top competitive mid-distance team racing at 100-300 miles, while also promoting high standards of care for Sled Dogs, and eventually moving towards distance racing.
