The Junior Dog Mushers of Interior Alaska (JDMIA) is the most current iteration of the organization historically known as the Fairbanks Junior Dog Mushers’ Association. The name change was prompted by an effort to be more inclusive to all interested parties in northern and interior Alaska. The JDMIA is committed to carrying on the long tradition of providing safe, fun and competitive opportunities for juniors to run sled dogs. We welcome new members and anybody who is interested in participating regardless of experience and skill level. We maintain an active email list-serve via Google groups. If you are interested in staying informed of current developments and announcements, please email us to join the list serve. Most information is also cross-posted as regular updates on our Facebook page.
