Paws in Alaska

Hello friends,

My paws have been super busy here at Iditarod Headquarters. It’s our busiest time as we are preparing for the 50th running of the Last Great Race.

There are also many other pawsome events leading up to the Iditarod. One being the Junior Iditarod. This year 15 brave mushers ages 14-17 raced in two 64 mile stages. This happened because of overflow on the usual race route. It was rookie Emily Robinson who won the race this year. Awooooooo! Only 6 seconds separated first and second place – another girl – Hannah Wappett. Read about all the mushers and some of their adventures here. High paws to all of our 2022 Juniors. 

Do you have any questions about the race? Email me at Questions will be answered in a future post.

Tail wags,
