The following is from the Organizers of The Alaska Excursions 120
The race is on! Due to the trail conditions there are changes to the race. The race will start and end at the Aurora Clubhouse in Big Lake. It will run from there out the Iditarod Trail past the Nome sign and make a loop returning on the same trail, about 46 miles. There will be a 10 dog limit with the ability to use dogs from your 12 dog pool. We are heading out to work on the trail and will post more info later.
Volunteers and spectators are always welcome! Directions to the Aurora Dog Mushers Clubhouse: From the Big Lake intersection with the Parks Highway (mile post 52.5), follow South Big Lake Road for 5.7 miles to Echo Lake Drive. Turn left on Echo Lake Drive. Follow Echo Lake Drive for 1 mile to where the road splits and then go right on Gonder Way. Proceed on Gonder Way until you reach the Clubhouse.
