The Iditarod Trail Committee has announced the premiere of TOUGHEST RACE ON EARTH: IDITAROD, on Tuesday, October 7 at 10 PM ET/PT, on the Discovery Channel.

Six one-hour episodes will follow mushers and their dog teams as they take on the elements, the cold and the trail conditions – as they race each other over one thousand miles across Alaska in The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

The Discovery Channel crews followed seven teams, including: Four-time Iditarod Champions Jeff King and Martin Buser, two-time Iditarod champion Lance Mackey, pioneering musher and breast cancer survivor DeeDee Jonrowe, two-time Iditarod finisher and diabetic Bruce Linton, along with rookies Rick Holt and Darin Nelson.
