1974 March I ought to know I am Mary Shields.
the iditarod originated from the serum run.
The Iditarod from 2018 has run for 45 years
Mary Shields was one of two women to be the first to participate in the Iditarod Trail Race in 1974, and the first to finish the Iditarod. She placed 23rd then. Her first race experience came shortly after she came to Alaska. In October some friends of hers let her borrow 3 of their dogs and a sled for her to use in hauling water and firewood. From this experience she learned a love for dogs and mushing.
Libby Riddles was the first woman to win the Iditarod, but Susan Butcher was close behind.
They can't run so they just get ran over during the iditarod .
The first Iditarod was held in 1973. Yupperz=)
The maximum number of dogs you can run in the Iditarod race is 16 dogs
White settlers ran this race.
The Iditarod received more attention outside of the state after the 1985 victory of Libby Riddles, a long shot who became the first woman to win the race. Susan Butcher became the second woman to win the race and went on to win three more years.
it sort of represents the serum run, which it originated from.
