Jr. Iditarod Sled Dog Race

Teens Fourteen to Seventeen Accepting Challenges

Opening day for Jr. Iditarod entries in the 2016 Race was  Saturday, June 27, 2015, at the Iditarod Headquarters in Wasilla.


The Race Rules are not available yet but will be available shortly. The early entry fee is $150. After December 15, the entry fee goes up to $250. The paperwork is on the Jr. Iditarod website and we will also have a few packets at Iditarod headquarters. (There is no notary at ITC HQ, so you must get your paperwork notarized somewhere else before coming in.)


The Race is open to young mushers from 14 – 17. It begins on Saturday, February 27, 2016, at 10 a.m. at Knik Lake. At the awards banquet, Scholarships will be offered to the top three mushes as well as winners of the sportsmanship and humanitarian awards.
