We are so proud of Jennifer Peeks. She and the team really had no expectation of winning. The green rookie just was going to try to have a clean race and have a good time. She is the first Woman to win the Bogus Creek 150 and Team Kaiser couldn’t be happier for her. Congratulations Jennifer!!
Our congratulations go out to Lewis Pavilla of Bad River Kennels from Kwethluk. They were the team to beat and besting them is a true accomplishment. Their dedication to the Bogus Creek 150 is truly what makes it special. I talked with Lewis after his finish and he told me he had won the 150 FOUR times! What an accomplishment! Here are a few photos of this great Musher and his wife!
I asked Jenn about the Checkpoint at the Bogus Creek 150. Unlike other races, in the Bogus Creek 150, a team has a “Pit Crew” that gets the camp all setup for the team once they arrive. Bogus Creek is in the wild, so everything must be brought in. Tents, Food, and other supplies are brought up by the Pit Crew.
Here’s what she and Ron had to say:
