The Iditarod race restart begins today at 5:30 pm ET from Willow, Alaska.
The traditional start of the race was yesterday in Anchorage. From Anchorage.net:
The traditional Iditarod course begins on Fourth Avenue at D Street and runs all the way to Campbell Creek Science Center. 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 across the trail. The course stretches approximately 1,000 miles, from Southcentral Alaska to the town of Nome.
