Fur Rondy Sprints at Sundown

After the Iditarod start, last Saturday at 5 pm, 10, 10-dog teams raced an exhibition dual start event using the same route down 4th Ave and Cordova that the Fur Rondy and Iditarod racers use. It was a fun event, and there were awards for best costume (Heather Hardy), and crowd favorite (Ed “Rockstar” Wood).Greg Sellentin won the event, Heather Hardy was second, and Ed Wood was third.The dual start and head on passing was very exciting for the racers and spectators, let’s hope this becomes a yearly event.images by Britt Coon www.akbritt.comVideo of the dual starts from the top of the parking garage on 4th Ave, by John Gomes www.akjohn.comyoutube::http://www.youtube.com/v/siLIXfvwj0k&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0
