Iditarod 2013 Photos

Iditarod Photos 2013 01 560x239From time to time here at Gunaxin Sports, we like to highlight Boston.com’s The Big Picture, and their collection of sports photos. In this installment we’d like to take a look at their recent gallery of photos from the Iditarod. While we understand the high cost of this event on the dogs, it’s tough to deny the beauty of the sport :

The 41st Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race came to an end yesterday in Nome, Alaska. Mitch Seavey, 53, with his team of ten dogs, became the oldest musher ever to win the 1,000-mile race across the Alaskan wilderness in just over 9 days, 7 hours. Last year his son, Dallas, became he youngest winner at 25. His winnings included $50,000 and a new truck. The race is a remaking of the freight route to Nome which pays tribute to the role sled dogs played in the settlement of Alaska.

Check out our favorites below, and see the entire collection and captions at The Big Picture.
