Alaska's Great Race

Image 1 / 10


Deep in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness, the Iditarod trail plays host to the annual dog sled race. From the city of Anchorage to Nome, 96 teams will attempt to traverse over a thousand miles of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet, with 16 finely tuned dogs as an engine. Follow them on their journey, and witness the obstacles and triumphs they encounter as man, and his dog work together. They must care for each other, and play a disciplined game of strategy if they hope to be first across the finish line in Nome. For some the goal is to win, for others surviving would be an achievement all of its own.
