ATAO’s Adventure to Nome involves a six-legged racing team. We are Hooch and Mari of ATAO Adventure. Sometimes we race together (slowed down considerably by the two legs in the back), and sometimes we race as part of a bigger team. With the help of Scott Smith’s professional team Red Dog Racing in Willow, Alaska, we are bigger and better and have more legs… Enough, in fact, to get us to Nome! As part of Red Dog Racing, we will run the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in March of 2017.


This is the story of how.
