We are hopeful that we will stage our Ceremonial Start in Anchorage this year, but we are not certain at this time.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be conferring with the Municipality of Anchorage leadership, Alaska Health and Social Services officials, and other key stakeholders to collaboratively determine the best and safest course of action for the start the 49th running of the Last Great Race on Earth.
In preparation for the 2021 Iditarod we want to share with all our IditaRiders that our staff is currently planning a number of activities to include in the IditaRider Experience. If you can be flexible with travel plans, please know that we expect to have greater clarity in the short term. Please read our COVID-19 Policy for more information.
