Junior Iditarod Interviews

Join host Michele Forto as she interviews participants in the 2024 Junior Iditarod in Knik, Alaska, right before the start of the race.

The Junior Iditarod is held each February and is open to junior mushers 14 to 17. The race is approximately 150 miles and unassisted into the Alaskan wilderness. The race is also a qualifier for the big race, The Iditarod.

How to Capture the Junior Iditarod Sled Dog Race


If you are like most sled dog fans, you want to relive the action of the race through taking photos and videos. As the old saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you. We always have our iPhone 15 Pro in our pocket and it takes excellent photos and videos. If you want to really up your game we recommend a Canon 90D with a 70-200mm lens in F2.8 for those action shots and a 35-70mm for more close up photos.

If video is more your game, we recommend this cage for your phone and this microphone with a windscreen or what they call a “dead cat.” 

Be sure to share your photos and videos over on our Facebook page, we would love to see them!
