ANCHORAGE — There’s a record purse this year for those willing to make the 2,000-mile trek in the grueling Iron Dog snowmachine race.
KTUU-TV reports that officials of the race from Big Lake to Nome to Fairbanks have $194,500 to dole out. That’s up from last year’s $187,900 total prize money.
First place gets $50,000. This year’s race begins Feb. 20.
