Newton Marshall heads to Alaska
to train for 2011 Racing Season

Newton Marshall heads to Alaska to begin training for 2011 Racing Season

Jamaica Dogsled Team musher Newton Marshall will arrive in Alaska on Wednesday, September 1st to begin training for his impressive schedule of races in 2011.

This year will be a very ambitious racing season for Marshall as he competes in the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race in Wyoming as well as the 2011 Iditarod.

“I’m very excited,” said Marshall. “I’m thankful to be starting my training earlier this year because it’s going to be a busy year. I can’t wait to start!”

Newton will once again be training with four-time Iditarod champion Lance Mackey. As part of his training schedule, Marshall will also participate in the Sheep Mountain 150 and the Copper Basin 300.

The JDT has an exciting year ahead. Marshall is one of three mushers who will be racing for the team this winter. Damion Robb and newcomer, Jermain Burford will be taking part in sprint races in Ontario and the US.

In addition to the racing season, this fall will see the release of a new book by John Firth, titled “One Mush” as well as a new documentary following Marshall during his completion of the 2010 Iditarod, titled “Cool Mushings”. Sales from both the book and the movie will help the team raise funds for the 2011 season.

Another way fans can show their support is by purchasing 2011 “Rootin’ for Newton” t-shirts and other gear through the JDT website.

JDT sponsors include: Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Chukka Caribbean Adventures, WestJet Vacations, Alpine Aviation, Northern Lights Optometry, Cottey College, Annamaet Petfoods and the Jamaica Tourist Board.
