Congratulations to all the true athletic champions who completed the 2019 Iditarod. Their love of endurance running is obvious by their happy-go-lucky attitudes at the end. And a big thank-you to all the mushers who have dedicated an immense amount of time money and skill in training these wonderful dogs. It takes a truly special breed of dog and person to accomplish this feat.

Hope to see you all again next year!
