Nome Info

The 2008 Iditarod Trail Invitational will follow the Northern Route to Nome. Racers will be responsible for sending their own drops to the villages beyond McGrath. The race will provide an airdrop of food, fuel and batteries to Cripple between Ophir and Ruby. Racers are responsible for calling in from villages beyond McGrath in order for us to keep the website updated with your progress.

Please contact us for further information on the villages along the trail.
