Photos: Alaska Railroad Hauls Snow to Anchorage for Iditarod Start

The Alaska Railroad delivers seven side-dump rail cars of Fairbanks snow to Anchorage on Thursday morning, March 3, 2016, to enable Iditarod to stage a ceremonial start on Saturday.

.

Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race mushers will travel only three miles through Anchorage during Saturday’s ceremonial start instead of the traditional 11-mile route to the Campbell Airstrip, race organizers announced Wednesday.

.

Lack of snow in the city prompted the Iditarod Trail Committee to shorten the route, officials said in a written statement. The 85 mushers and their sled dog teams will still start on Fourth Avenue and D Street in downtown Anchorage. They will travel onto Cordova Street, past Sullivan Arena and onto the Chester Creek Trail. Their run will end at the Davenport baseball fields, between Northern Lights Boulevard and East 20th Avenue off Lake Otis Parkway.

.

But Karl Heidelbach, Iditarod Anchorage start coordinator, said spectators shouldnt expect to park at the baseball fields this year. Adjacent parking will be reserved for mushers trucks. Heidelbach said race organizers are hoping to have mushers load their sled dogs into their trucks immediately after they finish the ceremonial route. They will then rotate other trucks into the lots.

The Iditarod announcement of a shortened route came two days after Alaska Railroad spokesman Tim Sullivan said a regularly-scheduled freight train would haul seven rail cars of snow from Fairbanks to Anchorage this week to help with the Iditarod ceremonial start and Fur Rondy events, like the Running of the Reindeer. That train left Fairbanks Wednesday.

.

Stan Hooley, Iditarod CEO, said at a scheduled media briefing Wednesday afternoon the Fairbanks delivery would add to the snow already stockpiled in Anchorage for the events. Heidelbach said a tarp was put over the stockpile in case of rain.

.

Weve done what we can, Heidelbach said. We have been evaluating this and stalling this decision as long as we possibly can to make the best with what weve got.

.

When it comes to snow, Anchorage doesnt have a lot. The National Weather Service reported Monday that the last of the snow had melted at its West Anchorage office. During the 29 days of February, the weather agency recorded 1.8 inches of snow at its office, all of that falling Feb. 21.
