Iditarod 2013 Trail
It’s the southern route that includes the namesake ghost-town of Iditarod as the midpoint. The Stepping Stones, the Burn, Rainy Pass, the Glacier, all of the hazards of the first half are still part of the race, as well as the long open stretch between Ophir and the Yukon.
The day is about 10 and a half hours at Anchorage and the moon is waning with the last quarter on March 4th. The temperature is in the lower 30s in Anchorage, which is warm for the puppies, so people are going to want to run at night and sleep during the day.
Things start off tomorrow, Susan Butcher Day, with the ‘parade’ from Anchorage to the airport. The actual racing starts on Sunday at Willow.
