BIG LAKE, Alaska (KTUU) - While the Iron Dog — tabbed “The World’s longest, toughest snowmobile race” — is highlighted by the Pro Class, the Expedition Class gives an opportunity for less competitive racers to still experience why the historic race has earned that title.

On Wednesday, 15 teams and 51 riders took off from Big Lake in hopes of making it to Nome with their sleds — and themselves — in one piece.
