Tim Muto lives and trains year round at the Salter Homestead on Joe Bush Creek in Eureka, AK with Wild and Free Musing. He and a rambunctious Yearling Race Team, drove into Glenallen early Tuesday morning to close out the 2016 Copper Basin 300. After 2 Days, 17 Hours and 45 Minutes on the trail, his official finish time was 4:39 AM AKT. He left Gakona Lodge on Saturday with bib #28 and finished 31st in his rookie race.
Tim had great support along the way from handlers (and photographers) Jason Avery and Kenny Malawi Eualani, both from Fairbanks. When they asked about the dogs at the final checkpoint in Mendeltna, Tim said “The dogs looked great and I think they have the heart to make it to the finish…no stopping…maybe a short rest…but we are coming in tonight!!”
Tim Muto and the Yearling Race Team impressed everyone this weekend. The future continues to look bright for the entire Wild and Free Mushing team and we can’t thank all the fans enough for the continued support!
