The 2019 Iditarod will start on Saturday, March 2 and Restart on Sunday, March 3.
Two kinds of starts? What’s that all about?
Well, boys and girls, the start is really a ceremonial start. That means it’s a big celebration, almost like a parade. Don’t you just love parades? I do! I do! I do!!!
AND the next day, well, that’s called the restart. That’s the day the race REALLY starts. When a musher leaves the starting line, the clock – or racing time starts and the real race is on! Oh boy! Oh girl! I can’t, can’t, can’t, wait! How about you?
