This is a just small sampling of the thousands of selfless people involved, one way or the other, in the Last Great Race on Earth®. Mushers, volunteers, spectators, village residents and of course the canine athletes. They are all on equal footing here. The images were made during pre-race activities as well as all along the 1,049 miles of trail from Anchorage to Nome. Both outdoors and indoors. Our hope is that from the images here, which take the subject out of the “Iditarod elements”, combined with their stories (audio & written) and personal info, will show what this thing we call the IDITAROD® really is — an Alaska event of real-life humans and superstar canines that is simply like no other event in the world.
