On March 6, 2010 is the 37th annual Iditarod. What is the Iditarod? Started in 1973, the Iditarod is the annual dog sled race that takes place on the Iditarod Trail between Anchorage, Alaska and Nome, Alaska. Itís a race that pairs humans, with their sled dogs as they make their way across well over 1100 miles (1769 km) of some of the toughest, coldest wilderness in North America.

The race itself is organized and operated almost entirely of volunteers. The route alternates every other year between a northern route and southern route, each with 26 and 27 checkpoints. At each checkpoint the sled dogs are examined by veterinary staff, while medical staff and volunteers are on hand to aid the mushers if necessary.
