 If you are planning on entering the 2018 Jr. Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, you will find all the required paperwork on this website under the Rules and Entry Form tab. All paperwork is required at time of entry. If you are entering the Jr. Iditarod for the first time, you will also need to submit a photo (preferably a jpg vertical color photo that shows your face– a photo that shows you on the back of the sled or something similar does not show who you are.)


Entries will be officially accepted on Sign up Day at the ITC Headquarters, Mile 2.2 Knik Goose Bay Road in Wasilla. There will be no entry fee charged if you sign up prior to December 1, 2017. But you will need to submit all your paperwork at the time of entry.


The race will be run February 24 and February 25, 2018 from Wasilla to Yentna Station Roadhouse and back. There will be a mandatory musher meeting on the Friday evening prior to the start of  the race and a mandatory vet check Friday morning prior to the start.
