Ayn is the the queen bee of the the pack and is back from last year! Ayn will be leading the pack, at the front of the sled.
Blast is back from last year and is ready to go!
It is Big O's first year racing, but that doesn't mean that he doesn't have the spirit and the heart to win!
The Iditarod is a highly dangerous dogsled race. Mushers and their dogs run for about 11,000 miles. They get checkpoints, every so often, but they can't stay there for long! Other racers might come, and pass them!
