Why We Do It: Behind The Iditarod


Copyright Terrie Hanke 2013

Fall training has begun. Even though we haven’t had significant snowfall,  we know, and the dogs know, the 2014 Iditarod is just down the trail, over a few hills, a gee, a haw, and straight ahead. We’re gearing up for the race and we hope you have begun to think about the race, too!

The Iditarod Trail Committee is well into the planning stages for the next race.  We’ve reviewed the details from the 2013 race and are lining out the plans for the northern route.  There are many details to be taken care of over the next few months.  We’re on it!  Why?

We do it to because it’s important.

Because we love the dogs, the race, Alaska, and this sport.

We do it because there is history and this is “The Last Great Race On Earth®.”
