The event began in 1984 as a 1,000-mile (1,600 km) race in Alaska from Big Lake near Wasilla to Nome. The Iron Dog race is a world-class snowmachine event that crosses the state of Alaska each February, impacting more than 25 Alaskan communities. The Iron Dog teams race from Anchorage to Nome and finish in Fairbanks. Racers travel nearly 2,000 miles of Alaska’s most remote and rugged terrain while surviving the harsh Alaskan winter conditions and sub-zero temperatures. The potential payout s nearly $200,000!
