Iditarod: The Great Alaskan Adventure Presentation by Eleanor Csizmadia
The Iditarod race is called: The Last Great Race On Earth®. Spanning from Anchorage, in South Central Alaska, to Nome on the Western Bering Sea coast, this 1,000 mile race covers the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer. The race pits man and animal against nature, and against wild Alaska at her best. Each mile covered is a tribute to Alaskas history and the role the sled dog played. The Iditarod is a tie to that colorful past. This race lives up to its nickname. Local enthusiast, Eleanor Csizmadia has been following the race for most of her life and will share personal photos, videos and race knowledge. Learn the facts and faces that make this race unique and about the dogs who make it possible, all from the warmth of the Library!
