The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is one of Alaska's iconic winter events, and the excitement starts in Anchorage on the first Saturday of March each year.
Onlookers get a close-up view of the teams. Spectators flock to the start line downtown or stake out a spot further down the 11-mile route through Anchorage.
After a restart at Willow the following day, Iditarod mushers and their dogs battle the elements and test their own limits on the approximately 1,000 mile trail to Nome.
