Time
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Description
Karen Land, a three-time participant in the 1,100-mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race across Alaska, will discuss how she got involved with sled dog racing and what led her to participate in the sport’s most grueling race.

In 1999 Land took a job caring for 100-some Alaskan Huskies at the Montana kennel of Dr. Terry Adkins, DVM, a 21-time Iditarod musher. In 2001, Land finished the 450-mile Wyoming International Stage Stop Race, the 250-mile Can Am Crown in Maine, and Montana’s 350-mile Race to the Sky Sled Dog Race.

In March 2002, Karen Land made her first appearance in the Iditarod and finished the race in just under 14 days. She went on to compete in the Iditarod in 2003 and 2004. Completing the Iditarod is among the most difficult feats in all of sports. More people have reached the summit of Mount Everest than have made it to the Iditarod finish line behind a team of dogs.

The Race starts down the city streets of Anchorage, crosses the treacherous Alaskan Range Mountains and follows the bitterly cold Yukon River to the Bering Sea and the gold rush town of Nome.
