Dallas Seavey unseats his father as champion in the 2014 Alaskan Iditarod
Dallas Seavey won his second Iditarod sled-dog race in three years on Tuesday, unseating his father, Mitch, as defending champion while breaking the race’s three-year-old record.
The race commemorates a 1925 rescue mission that carried diphtheria serum by sled-dog relay to the coastal community of Nome, which remains the final destination in this 42nd edition of the event.

This is a cruel and unnecessary race.

In response to Susan, I am an avid animal lover, and until I actually witnessed for myself the start of the Iditarod I had similar thoughts. I found that the dogs LIVE & LOVE to do this, and more importantly, the mushers LOVE their dogs and with vet checks at each checkpoint dogs get pulled when they are not 100%. This race is about teamwork and massive help from volunteers who love the dogs & the mushers. So much love, caring, enthusiasm & excitement make it a race that is unlike any other!

LOVE Iditarod time!! The start and restart are days of fun and seeing lots of athletic dogs and their musher mates. Fabulous pictures can be taken and there are always fond memories and excitement following the top 10 as well as the last one to arrive. Its a great celebration for the dogs who LOVE to run and are soooo excited! Haven’t found alot to compare it to.
