Nov. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Robert Forto of Willow, Alaska will race in the Knik 200 Sled Dog Race in January.

Forto, 41, is the owner/operator of Team Ineka and is competing in several mid-distance sled dog races in the 2012-2013 with his sights set on qualifying for the 2014 Iditarod. Forto has been a musher since 1994 and moved to Alaska in 2010 to pursue his life-long goal of running in the Iditarod.

The Knik 200, as it is popularly known, covers 200 miles and is an Iditarod & Yukon Quest sanctioned race -- meaning the mushers who finish this race have completed a necessary step in meeting the qualifications for running the much longer races. As a result, this race attracts some of the top contenders from the longer races. The race starts on Saturday January 5, 2013.

“I have worked for more than a decade to get to the starting line of this race,” says Forto.

Team Ineka is a family run long distance mushing kennel in Willow, Alaska. The kennel is comprised of 30 Alaskan Huskies and Siberian Huskies with Neff, Baker, Osmar and Scheer lines.
