||The Iditarod is the "LAST GREAT RACE"
Over 1,000 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer
Crosses jagged mountain ranges, frozen rivers, dense forests, desolate tundra and miles of windswept coast
Temperatures that fall far below zero, winds that can cause complete lack of visibility, overflow, longs hours of darkness
Competitors from all walks of life all vying for an Ididarod Official Finishers belt buckle and the right to say "I finished the Iditarod".
Thousands of volunteers from Anchorage to Nome who make it all happen.
