Dunkirk Boilers is a proud to sponsor Kristy and Anna Berington of Seeing Double Sled Dog Racing as they participate in the 2017 Iditarod, The Last Great Race®. The Ceremonial Start ran out of downtown Anchorage on Saturday, March 4th, but mushers then drove the 350 miles or so with their teams and gear up to Fairbanks for a re-start Monday, March 6th. The race is approximately 1,000 miles long, stretching from Anchorage to Nome. This will be Kristy’s 8th appearance in the Iditarod and Anna’s 6th. It will be the first sponsorship of its kind for Dunkirk Boilers.
“The Seeing Double Dog Sled Team provided Dunkirk with a great platform for exposure and increasing brand awareness,” stated Dave Walsh, Director of Sales at ECR International. “We share customers and this provides us with an ability to reach them and associate Dunkirk with the Alaskan community with a brand in the Dog Sled sport that is popular and recognizable at a very organic level. We are looking forward to capitalizing on this opportunity.”
Dunkirk will be keeping up with their progress on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/DunkirkBoilers. Join us as we follow along and support the teams and their mushers!
