Iditarod Ceremonial Start

The Iditarod Ceremonial start from downtown Anchorage went off smoothly, by all reports. The 67 mushers, their 12-dog teams, handlers and Iditariders made the 12 mile trip without incident.

The teams are now arriving at the staging area in Willow for the re-start, slated for 2:00pm Alaska time, 5:00pm Central DST (spring forward!)

Stay tuned for updates from this year's exciting race!
