Starting Positions for Iditarod XLI


The starting positions for the 41st Iditarod were drawn at last night’s banquet in Anchorage. This year’s honorary musher is Jan Newton, a 40-year race volunteer who over the years earned the affectionate title “Queen of Takotna.” Forty years ago, before Takotna was even an official race checkpoint, Jan and her husband, Dick, began feeding the mushers who passed through their small village chili and moose stew. The couple managed the checkpoint until Jan’s death last year at age 75. In 2008, Jan and Dick were inducted into the Iditarod Hall of Fame.

Below is a list of the starting positions for this year’s race. The ceremonial start begins tomorrow at 10am Alaska time.
