Join us for the Iditarod Restart Sunday, March 5 in Willow on Willow Lake. Teams begin to depart at 2 p.m., so get there early to grab a good viewing spot.
On the day following the Iditarod Start in Downtown Anchorage, mushers will again line up for the Restart in Willow. At 2 p.m., the first teams will depart on their way to Nome, leaving in 2 minute intervals until all of the teams have left. The clock starts for the mushers as they leave the starting line. The difference in starting times is made up on a musher’s 24 hour mandatory layover.
There will be a $10 charge per vehicle for parking. The general public will not be allowed to park in the Willow Community Center parking lot. Handicapped parking will be located as close as possible to the Willow Community Center entrance.
On race day, look for electronic sign boards located on the Parks Highway in Wasilla and at Houston High School advising current information on parking availability in Willow.
