2012 Iron Dog Calendar of Events
The 29th Annual start of the Iron Dog Pro Class race begins Sunday, February 19, 2012 at Big Lake, Alaska. The entire list of dates and times are published at Schedule of Events under the For Race Fans button in the top navigation.
- Registration Deadline:
Some racers will be quick to pick this out, we’ve moved the deadline for entry to October 31, 2011. We recognize it can be difficult for racers to solidify their sponsors, funding and other arrangements. For the Iron Dog organization it is equally as challenging and it’s imperative that we close entries earlier to provide the time needed to plan logistics, publications, organizing volunteers, events, etc.
- Finish Awards Ceremony: Due to last second changes due to weather in 2011, we cancelled our standard banquet and discovered that a reception and awards ceremony might actually be a better way to wrap up the end of the Iron Dog race. This year we are looking at ways to expand on the idea and will most likely hold a large reception at Pike’s Waterfront Lodge. The rationale is that many sponsors, racers, family and fans have limited time (and patience) for a lengthy banquet style event. We believe a shorter, higher quality event will be well received and it allows more time for getting home after a long race week!
