After taking a couple of years off, Sigrid Ekran is back for her third Iditarod. Ekran has been living in Norway and running dogs all over Europe the past few years, but she says it was always the plan to return to The Last Great Race.
The mandatory vet checks were held in Wasilla today. This is video of Jan Bullock giving one of Tom Thurston’s dogs an EKG. Every dog that runs in the race must pass these tests before they are cleared to run in the Iditarod.
