Iron Dog Race Inc

About Us

Iron Dog is a proud leader in the snowmobile community! We are more than just a race, we support the communities we travel through by promoting snowmobile safety and outdoor education through trade shows, seminars, and community events.

The first Iron Dog event started in 1984 and followed the Northern Route of the Historic Iditarod Trail to Nome. Since then it has had multiple incarnations ranging from 1,049 miles in 1984 to over 2,500 miles today. 2024 marks the 40th running of The World’s Longest Toughest Snowmobile Race, a truly iconic Alaskan tradition.
The 2024 starts in Big Lake, Pro Class racers travel over the Alaska Range to the Yukon River, then cut overland toward the Bering Sea coast. Once on the coast they travel to Koyuk then to Kotzebue via the “Red Dog Loop”. From Kotzebue racers head south reaching the halfway point in Nome. After leaving Nome, Pro Class Racers will reverse course to finish back in Big Lake, Alaska. A “non competitive” class of riders, the Expedition Class will depart after the Pro Class and finish in Nome.
Participants cover some of Alaska’s most remote and rugged terrain, passing through 23+ communities, while confronting some of the harshest winter conditions. Survival skills are essential, all teams comprise of two racers on two snowmobiles for safety (Expedition Class Teams can have more than two riders).
