Lance Mackey
Iditarod & Yukon Quest Champion

Lance Mackey is well known as one of the most inspirational athletes in Alaska’s history. He demonstrates the true spirit of Alaskans. Lance is the first and only musher to win both the Yukon Quest and Iditarod four times in a row. Lance’s winning attitude, ability to overcome adversity, and his love of dogs combine to make him one of the world’s most winning dog mushers. His incredible back to back Quest and Iditarod championships show his grit, determination, and appetite for “tough.”  Lance is an exceptional dog driver, a cancer survivor,  and a down to earth, regular guy. As a guest speaker, Lance leaves audiences inspired and motivated.

Meet the Dogs

Meet the amazing dogs of Comeback Kennel. These incredible, world-class canine athletes are happy, healthy, and eager to please! Lance and his team of Alaskan huskies have a special connection. The care he provides them has earned widespread recognition. If you can’t watch the team train or race on the trail, you can still sponsor a dog, or take a tour of Comeback Kennel.

Meet the Dogs

The reality is, I want to make my dogs proud of me. I work as hard as they do and I think they know that. There is nothing more rewarding than happy, enthusiastic dogs at the end of a race.
