2024 Iditarod - Paige is back in the running

" />

The ceremonial start in downtown Anchorage is set for 2 PM east coast time (10 AM local time). After a short trip to Campbell Airstrip, the teams will be trucked to Willow AK for the restart at 6 PM east coast (2 PM local time). 38 mushers and their teams will be following the Northern Route's ~1,000 mile journey. 6 other teams had signed up but withdrawn.

After being absent for a year, VT's Paige Drobny is back in the race. She normally does not do a lot of interviews and I cannot find any pre-race video of her, so I'm not sure if she is pushing for a top finish or taking it as a trip out with her dogs to train and bond. Will probably know more after a few days mushing. Her husband, Cody, is not running this year.

Some key people I'll be watching:

Obviously Paige, Let's Go ... Hokies
Aaron Burmeister - who had retired with 8 top 10 finishes, but is back in 2024. Said it is a way of life and he couldn't stay away
Jessie Holmes - 4x top 10 finisher
Peter Kaiser - last year's 2nd place finisher, 2019 champion and 8 top 10 finishes
Nicolas Petit - 6x top 10 finisher
Jessie Royer - 8x top 10 finisher
Ryan Redington - 2023 winner with 4 top 10 finishes
Dallas Seavey - 5 time winner with 11 top 10 finishes
