The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race started with a dream by Joe Redington Sr., known as the Father of the Iditarod, to commemorate the role played by sled dogs in Alaska’s history and culture. Throughout the history of the native people of Alaska, sled dogs have served as the only viable means of transportation in a frozen wilderness.
