ID: Ceremonial Start Media Coverage

If you watched the live feed of the Ceremonial Start, you got to see both teams looking great as they approached the line and flawlessly start their runs.

For the Red Team, Waylon got the most air time and surely captivated the audience with his piercing blue eyes. Aliy gave her typically cheerful and enthusiastic interview, at one point even asking Nacho to answer the reporter's question!



Allen checked in with his leaders, Dingle and Beemer, while the camera caught every move. His daughter Bridgette was close by to lend a hand, with her son looking on from above. In the background, you can see Moira hustling to grab a last-minute photo before jumping on the runners. What a team effort!



The Ceremonial Start run will take an hour or so, after which the dogs will be pampered as usual before settling down for the night. As soon as she can, Moira will post an update with media for you to enjoy... Stay tuned!

The ceremonial start is always fun to watch...we have a big IditaParty here in the Adirondacks and toast the teams going out the chute! Both Red and Black teams looked GREAT!! Can't wait to watch it again tomorrow with the full compliment of 16 Dogs per Team and the 100% "game on" attitude!
