Iditarod | Restart Map Willow - Important Facts

The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race restart starts on Sunday afternoon at Willow Lake, and that's when the real racing starts.

The Willow restart offers fans one more opportunity to witness mushers and their teams before they travel farther off the beaten path on their almost 1,000-mile route to Nome. Several thousand spectators turn out to support the 50 to 80 dog teams, and the Willow Community Center is taken over by vendors selling food and souvenirs.

Starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, dog teams will stage at Willow Lake before departing in two-minute intervals. For those who are unable to attend in person, the restart will be broadcast live on the Iditarod website.
