Asst. Race Director - John Bryant

John grew up and currently lives in Milwaukee Wisconsin. He has strong ties to Houghton and the Keweenaw. His family has deep roots in Central, and are active in the Central Mine Methodist Church reunion yearly which brings descendants of those who worked the mine back to Central to celebrate each summer. He spent his summers growing up in Eagle Harbor, attended Michigan Tech, and along with his daughter is a frequent visitor at his family’s homes in Eagle Harbor.

John has had an interest in Siberian Huskies and has had several of them over the past 20 years, so when CD began he took an immediate interest in the race. He started out as a volunteer handler at the Eagle Harbor checkpoint in 2011. Watching the first team come down the hill into the Eagle Harbor checkpoint was all it took for him to know he wanted to see the race become a great success! John has become more involved in many aspects of the race weekend over the past seven years including technical coordinator, assistant start/finish coordinator, safety and communications, and assistant chief handler.

With 20 years of career progression in the airline and aviation industry John brings strong organizational skills, and a people (and dogs!) first mentality to the great mix of people who make up the CD team. He looks forward to seeing the race continue to grow and being the race mushers love to run.
