The SP Kennel DogLog will be the place to come for SP Kennel-centric coverage of the race. We are proudly and unapologetically focussed on only our two teams so if you want to find out about other teams you will need to check with other kennel blogs and/or Facebook pages.
We also don’t offer any strategic interpretation or “guessing” about what other teams are doing or will do. There are plenty of others who offer their opinion on what’s happening; we just want to bring you what we know.
For a view of the wider race, the Iditarod Insider, that has GPS Trackers and on-the-trail videos is the best place to go for direct updates. If you haven’t already, you may consider getting this package for yourself if you can.
Check out the Iditarod Trail Committee Website and Facebook page for exclusive updates also. They will have some great photos daily and update on the main stories and current standings. Sebastian Schnuelle will once again be writing for their website and he is always entertaining and informative.
We’ll be keeping an eye on all the local media as they will have reporters and photographers following the trail and try to link you to their stories. If you see something we may have missed please feel free to let us know about it by emailing Moira at SPKDogLog@gmail.com.
We plan to be as interactive as possible this year so we will be having extra Dog Fan Club draws throughout the race and also a few other competitions for you to enter, so keep your eye out for those. We also love all your comments and support during the race, and both Aliy and Allen go back through the posts and enjoy reading your comments after the race is over so keep ’em coming!
We appreciate in advance your patience as we get confirmation and details about any dogs that are returned to our handler team in Anchorage from either the Red or Black team. We’ll get that information to you as soon as possible but the teams are travelling through very remote parts of Alaska and sometimes it can take a few days for the information to get to us. Rest assured the dogs are in great hands with the veterinarian and volunteer teams in the checkpoints and we will post the info as soon as we can, so your patience is appreciated.
We hope you enjoy following along!
