The Last Great Race on Earth

On Saturday, March 1, a race will begin that pits humans and dogs against the wilds of nature for almost 1200 miles over two weeks. It's called the Iditarod®.

  "The Iditarod Trail, now a   National Historic Trail, had its   beginnings as a mail and   supply route from the coastal   towns of Seward and Knik to   the interior mining camps at   Flat, Ophir, Ruby and beyond   to the west coast communities   of Unalakleet, Elim, Golovin, White Mountain and Nome. Mail and supplies went in. Gold came out. All via dog sled. Heroes were made, legends were born."

Think Super Bowl, World Series, and Stanley Cup all in one—with dogs.
