The Annual Alaskan Tradition That Gets Better And Better With Age

Known as The Last Great Race, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual classic race held in Alaska. Dog mushing has been Alaska’s official state sport even before the start of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod is a highly anticipated event that many Alaskans look forward to!
