Canadian Challenge

Jerry Joinson


Jerry last won the Challenge in 2019, and has raced with us many times. He has also competed in the Yukon Quest, Eagle Cap and many other races. He says he is 'retired' now, but that seems to mean spending as much time with his dogs as humanly possible. In between being with his dogs he loves fishing, exploring, camping and canoeing.
