2009 Iditarod Racers are On the Trail
WILLOW -- They made a good show of it in Anchorage March 7, but March 8 in Willow
was the real start of the 2009 Iditarod. Here are some images from the race re-start. Racers
plunged down the trail to cheers after a greeting from famed figure skater Dorothy Hammill.
