The Iditarod Race
The Iditarod is named after the Iditarod Trail that the race takes place on. Iditarod is an Indian name meaning 'clear water'
The trail actually crosses Norton Sound, a frozen body of water
It was a mail and supply route before it became a race
The aurora borealis, known as the northern lights, is a natural light display in the sky found particularly in the high latitude regions. They are caused by the collision of charged particles with atoms in the thermosphere. They can only be seen at night, and it is a great thing to watch.
The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual 1,049-mile (1,688 km) sled dog race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome. Mushers and a team of 12-16 dogs, of which at least 6 must be on the towline at the finish line, cover the distance in 9–15 days.
Why we do it:
The Iditarod race is a commemoration, or an event to remember something special, of that historic event. The Iditarod sled-dog race is run on a trail that was originally a mail-supply route. In 1925, part of the trail became a lifesaving highway for the children who lived in Nome. A serum, or a liquid used to prevent or cure a disease, had to be delivered to the children who suffered from a deadly disease. The serum was transported successfully by a string of mushers and their dogs.
