The 2021 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is slated to begin March 7 with dozens of mushers, hundreds of sled dogs and a whole lot of changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including a major alteration to the race course (an out-and-back trail that steers clear of villages on the second half of the usual route and doesn’t finish in Nome) and the cancellation of the traditional ceremonial start in Anchorage.
