Herbst leads Iditarod at halfway point
Herbst a Kiel native
Trent Herbst, 40, was born and raised in Kiel, Wisconsin. He is the son of Larry and Connie Herbst.
Trent graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Lacrosse with a major in Elementary Education. He became interested in the Iditarod while teaching in Switzerland.
He began mushing in 2005.
Trent moved to Idaho in 2006 where he is a fourth grade teacher. He has taught for 16 years.
He and his wife, Candida, have one daughter, Kali, age 8. The family spends their summers in their cabin in Homer. Trent is a member of Mush with P.R.I.D.E. He says he enjoys anything outdoors and teaching.


When Kiel grad Trent Herbst returned to tell the Class of 2010 about his adventures in the outdoors, he explained to them he was planning another run at the Iditarod. Today, he stands atop the standings at the halfway point of the amazing race.

And, he thanks his fourth grade students for helping pack the food drops for his team of sled dogs. Herbst uses an unusual treat for his dogs - cat food - to get them interested in eating their own food when they don't want to eat the dog food.
While Herbst was the first to make the halfway checkpoint at the halfway ghost town of Iditarod, he was expected to get passed in the afternoon. Herbst had to take his mandatory 24 hour layover, while others had already taken theirs.
However, getting to the halfway point has its own rewards.
When he arrived in Iditarod he was greeted by Emily Jones, product analyst for GCI, and was awarded the GCI Dorothy Page Halfway Award as well as $3,000 in gold nuggets, courtesy of Iditarod Principal Partner GCI.
Herbst said the trail from Ophir was in good condition, and the northern lights show, compliments of Mother Nature, was a big bonus.
The GCI Dorothy Page Halfway Award will be re-presented to Herbst in Nome on Sunday, March 20th, during the Iditarod Awards Banquet at the Nome Recreation Center.
