#1: What is the Iditarod?
by Ms. G and the Room 11 Kids

Have you ever wondered...
How many teams participate?
Do other places have Iditarods?
How fast do the dogs run?


Did you know?
The Iditarod is a dog sled race that is held in Alaska every year. It begins on the first Saturday of March in Anchorage and ends 1,200 miles later in Nome.

The Iditarod Trail has been used to transport mail and goods between villages across the Alaskan wilderness since the days when the settlement of Alaska first began. The race first was organized in 1973 to keep up the tradition of dog sledding culture and to preserve this historic trail.

It is interesting that one man is being moved by so many dogs! When I was a child one neighbor's dog was quite enough to drag my sled.
