The 2010 Iditarod is underway!
"You can't compare it to any other competitive event in the world! A race over 1150 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer...A race extraordinaire, a race only possible in Alaska."
The 2010 Iditarod is currently underway, with the official start taking place this past weekend. Seventy one mushers and their sled dog teams are competing this year in the "Last Great Race on Earth". Lynden employees are familiar faces at Alaska sled dog races, volunteering as race announcers, caring for the dog teams and lending other support.
