Dallas Seavey

Dallas Seavey (born March 4, 1987) is an American dog musher, who won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race across the U.S. state of Alaska in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016. In 2018 and 2019, Seavey also competed in Europe’s longest sled dog race, Norway’s Finnmarkslopet, placing 3rd in the 2018 race. As a result of an incident following the 2017 Iditarod, where Seavey was cleared of any wrong doing related to four dogs on his team testing positive to a banned substance, more stringent preventive measures were initiated to protect the canine athletes. The Iditarod Trail Committee implemented additional precautions along the trail to safeguard against tampering of dogs' food: all food drop bags are sealed with tamper proof zip ties, and 24/7 surveillance coverage at the Nome dog lot was added in 2018 as well as at three other checkpoints along the route.
