2014 Race Planning Update

RACE PLANNING UPDATE:

The Ceremonial Start of Iditarod XLII will be held in Anchorage on Saturday, March 1, beginning at 10:00 am as planned.

At this time we are planning to stage the Restart in Willow on Sunday, March 2 beginning at 2:00 pm, also as planned.

We do have trail concerns, particularly from the top of Rainy Pass to Nikolai. If conditions are not deemed acceptable by February 17, we will stage the Restart in Fairbanks on Monday, March 3, time yet to be determined.
