Iditarod research project
by: Ryley Hemphill
Over the last several years, Alaskan temperatures have continued to rise. How are race officials and mushers adapting to the Iditarod based on the effects of the changing climate.
Temperatures (supposed to be subzero) are in the 30s and 40s. For both the dogs and mushers it makes it harder to race.
For the dogs, it is extremely hard to pull a sled with no or little snow.
