Insider 2.0


Iditarod Insider 2.0 offers a glimpse into the lives of Iditarod sled dogs and the people who engage with them every day of their lives.


They are lives full of energy, activity, and wellness. We visit with those that spend their summers on the glaciers, to others that spend their days near their wilds of Denali, and all stops in between. Insider 2.0 sets out to take you inside their lives, far from the trail and a look at a life of joy, camaraderie, and a level commitment that has few rivals.

What an opportunity!  Tim Pappas has finished the Iditarod before but for 2020 Martin Buser has given him the keys to the “A” team.  The 4-time Champion has taught many finishers the ropes of being a good dog driver and he thinks Tim is ready for this challenge.
