Anchorage, Alaska (PRWEB) March 02, 2016
The Iditarod, the Last Great Race®, begins Saturday, March 5th, running from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. The race covers 1,000 miles of the roughest terrain in Alaska, pitting each team against nature. The Iditarod is more than a race, it’s a tribute to Alaska’s history and the role the sled dog has played. This year, due to lack of snow, the ceremonial start route in Anchorage will be shortened from 11 miles to three miles. The start begins this Saturday, March 5th, at 10 am with 85 teams lined up to compete in this year’s race.
