About Team Ineka

Team Ineka is a mushing kennel in Willow, Alaska and is owned and operated by two podcasters, and outdoor leaders, Robert and Michele Forto. We live at Forto's Fort in the woods surrounded by some of the best dog mushing trails in the Great White North. Every winter we share our passions with people that are looking for adventure. The last two winters Robert has taught a college course he designed that is one of a kind. Imagine spending a week in the Alaskan backcountry with a team of sled dogs, riding fat bikes and learning about outdoor leadership. 

This year Robert is organizing the Serum Run Expedition which is a 700 mile trip that travels from Nenana to Nome Alaska by dog team and snow machine. We have 13 adventurers on the trip. Robert is using this a part of a larger masters thesis project while he is attending grad school. 

Running races is the easy part. We believe that a team consists of more than awesome dogs and a musher. Our team consists of an awesome handler, good friends, and supporters like you. Mushing is expensive and while we do our part to give our dogs the very best we would love to have a group of loyal Patrons along for the ride and share our experiences on the trail. 

Did you know that it costs about $2500 a month to feed our dog teams? On top of the routine veterinary care, travel to races, gear and so much more it averages about $40,000 a year to do what we love to do. Having a stable group of core sponsors and team members is truly transformative and it will allow us to reach our goals this season and the Iditarod in the near future. 

We have created this page in response to those who have asked how they can help. We would love to welcome you to our Team and lets mush down a dream together!
