Siberian Husky Sled Dog, Mason City High School graduate Bob Chlupach will be part of the field in the 40th annual Iditarod Dog Sled Race that begins Saturday in Anchorage.
Chlupach, 63, who lives in Willow, Alaska, will compete in his 11th Iditarod event. This year, the race follows the northern trail, a 975-mile route, that ends in Nome, Alaska. He will join almost 70 mushers in the race.
Chlupach, who graduated from MCHS in 1967, is an Iowa State University graduate, worked for many years as a fisheries biologist in Alaska. He became enamored of sled dogs in the mid-1970s and is a noted Siberian huskies breeder, according to race information.
He entered his first Iditarod in 1977. His best finish was recorded in 1982, when he finished in seventh place. In most of his races, Chlupach has finished in the top 25.
Now in retirement, Chlupach works as a carpenter and professional sports fishing guide.
