2017 Iditarod Tour

Status: Active
Description: The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual long-distance sled dog race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome. The race is the most popular sporting event in Alaska. The trail runs from Willow up the Rainy Pass of the Alaska Range into the sparsely populated interior, and then along the shore of the Bering Sea, finally reaching Nome in western Alaska. The trail is through a harsh landscape of tundra and spruce forests, over hills and mountain passes, and across rivers. The Southern Route is used for the odd years and the Northern Route for the even years. Pilots will fly supplies to the various checkpoints along the event trail. Choose your aircraft wisely as most runways are in the 2500 - 4000 foot range however, some runways are even shorter. Sign up to enjoy all the challenges this tour has to offer and dress warm! Tour start date is March 4th, 2017
