|Deep in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness lies the Iditarod trail, home to the last great race. Jagged mountain ranges, dense alpine forests and windswept coastlines make the route between Anchorage and Nome some of the most challenging terrain in the world. In this competition, 96 teams will attempt to traverse more than a thousand miles with 16 finely tuned dogs as an engine. Man and man's best friend must work together, care for each other, and play a disciplined game of strategy if they hope to be first to the finish line in Nome. For some the goal is to win; for others surviving would be a feat all its own. |
