Join us for the 2023 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race!
Race day is Saturday, March 4 and festivities begin at 10 a.m. in Downtown Anchorage at the corner of 4th and D street.
Get there early to get a good viewing spot!
The teams leave the start line at the corner of 4th and D Street at two minute intervals, starting at 10 a.m.
The mushers follow multi-use trails through Anchorage to Campbell Airstrip, an 11 mile run. The Saturday start is a ceremonial start and does not count in the overall time in the race to Nome.
On the following day, Sunday, mushers will again line up for the ReStart in Willow. At 2 p.m., the first teams will depart on their way to Nome, leaving in 2 minute intervals until all of the teams have left. The clock starts for the mushers as they leave the starting line. The difference in starting times is made up on a musher’s 24 hour mandatory layover.
It is impossible to predict the exact day or time that the first musher will cross the finish line in Nome. However, we expect it to be between 9 and 12 days, arriving the second Tuesday or Wednesday after the race restart.
