ID: Anchorage Hotel and Start Banquet

Just a reminder that during the Iditarod weekend in Anchorage the entire SP Kennel Crew of dogs and humans will be staying at the Extended Stay Anchorage - Downtown.

Come stay with us and you might get to meet the dogs and the crew! We will let you know the schedule for when we "drop the dogs" (actually: lift them down very carefully) from the truck during Friday, Saturday and Sunday for feeding and walking, so come and visit with us. We would love to see you!

Please email Linda Steiner at: for bookings, pricing and availability.

We will keep this button in the 'fan zone' (left hand side) of the blog that links you to more information and contact details.

We currently have a few surplus tickets for sale for the Start Banquet and Bib Draw on Thursday, March 3rd at 6pm in the Dena’ina Center. If you would like to attend the banquet and sit at an SP Kennel table please email Moira at Tickets are $82 and this will be on a first come, first served basis. Let me know how many tickets you need.

NOTE: There are no plans for a Meet-and-Greet with Aliy and Allen this year.
