This year's race is Saturday, March 10.
More on the original doggie race, here.
And a shout-out to the people who look out for those who can't look out for themselves - the dogs in the real dog race:
Dogs die every year in the Iditarod. At least four died in the 2006 race, and in 2005, at least three died, from causes including hypothermia, gastric ulcers, or “sled dog myopathy”—literally being run to death.
Just send 'em your $25/yr or whatever it is and try not to think about where that chicken sandwich comes from. Maybe eat a veggie burger once in a while. And do the Urban Iditarod, of course.
...best I can tell, this race is shut down this year (2007). MySpace page is down. Odd, that. Sorry.
...you can see the cached MySpace profile here. And going to the blog gets you this msg:
This user's profile has been temporarily disabled for special maintenance. The profile will be available again shortly.
Sorry for the inconvenience. 3/10/2007
Special maintenance on the blog. Going to the regular myspace page gives you the following error:
Sorry! an unexpected error has occurred.
This error has been forwarded to MySpace's technical group.
The whole thing is odd. If the event is canceled, why would MySpace take the page down?
