Toughest Race on Earth: Iditarod

Show Summary

The Iditarod is a dogsled race spanning across approximately 1,151 miles of the Alaskan wilderness. Starting in Anchorage, Alaska, the goal is for the mushers to cross the finish line in Nome, Alaska. In the year 2008, 96 teams attempted what is known as "the toughest race on Earth" with one goal in mind: to cross the finish line. However, as the mushers soon realize, the Iditarod is not called for tough for no reason, and for some, surviving is a challenge all on its own.

    I've always been interested in the Iditarod dog sled races, so this documentary was a real treat for me. I'm still hoping to attend the opening ceremonies one of these days when finances are less of an issue. The thing that disappoints me the most is that the Discovery Channel has no plans to renew this series for a second season, according to Marting Buser's website. The series shows the harsh conditions the racers and dogs must endure during the race. There are some happy times, and some sad times, such as when the dogs must be left behind because they're too injured or sick to continue. Here's hoping that one of these Discovery will realize how great this series is and renew it.moreless
