This morning we take 12 dogs out on a three mile ceremonial run through downtown Anchorage! We are so pleased that we get to go through town, even though it is only three miles! We hope you see you there!!
Any dog from the musher's short list of 20 may run in the ceremonial run but once they have run it with one musher they may not start in Willow for another musher. As we brought 34 possibles (to cover for any injuries or last minute issues) there may be a couple of dogs on the ceremonial run that won't start on Sunday, but we will confirm the final rosters later tonight or tomorrow.
Allen's Black Team for today is Quito and Junior, Lydia and Boonie, Tinder and Nomex, Lester and Champ, Sissy and Spark, Biscuit and Violet. Tracey Lauer is Allen's Idia-rider and Chris will ride the tag sled.
Aliy's Red Team is: Waylon and Scruggs, Kodiak and Schmoe, Mismo and Izzy, Commando and Chipper, Willie and Dutch, Chemo and Clyde. Aliy's Idita-rider is Robin Bauer and Moira will ride the tag sled.
Check out the roster page for more details on each athlete.
Chris will be wearing a GoPro and Moira will have the video camera so we'll get some footage to you as soon as we can after the run!
