ED ITEN TAKES 17th IN 2008 IDITAROD
Ed Iten crossed under Nome’s famed burled arch as the seventeenth musher to complete the 2008 Iditarod. He and his team were on the 1049-mile trail for 10 days, 4 hours, 59 min. 40 sec. It was Ed's 9th consecutive Iditarod finish.
 
 

Ed was the 2007 winner of the prestigious Leonhard Seppala Humanitarian Award, which recognizes the musher who provides the best care for his or her dogs during the race. The award is named after Alaska's most venerated musher, who traveled with his dogs the longest distance in the 1925 effort to transport diphtheria serum to Nome. It is considered the highest honor a race competitor can receive. That's Piker on the right.

LYNDEN AIR CARGO SUPPORTS THE ITEN TEAM
 
From the beginning of Ed's racing career, Lynden Air Cargo has supported team Iten as the kennel's biggest sponsor. Each year, the Lynden Family of Companies transports hundreds of pounds of dog food as well as the team itself to and from Kotzebue without charge. Lynden's support has greatly contributed to the overall success of the team by allowing the family to spend more time training and less time working to secure the funds necessary to keep and maintain one of Alaska's most successful bush kennels.
