The Iditorad is one of the toughest and coolest sporting events on the planet. It was created out of necessity and our unrelenting desire to survive.
Men called "mushers" lead a team of 12-16 sled dogs(mostly Alaskan Huskies) from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska(over 1000 miles.)
Iditorad racers sled through some of the coldest, and most dangerous conditions to compete for cash prizes and to commemorate the "1925 serum run to Nome" see History below.
