General Meeting Special Guest Martin Buser
Competing in Alaska’s Iditarod Race March 4

Join the National Board in cheering on Martin Buser and all the other mushers
as they make their way across nearly 1,000 miles of rugged Alaskan trails.

On Saturday, March 4, at 10:00 AM, Martin Buser and his team of sled dogs will gather in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, with over 70 other mushers to compete in the exciting 2017 Iditarod Sled Dog Race.

Then, just weeks after Martin will have competed in Alaska’s Last Great Race, General Meeting guests will get a rare opportunity to meet Martin and his four-legged competitors at a Monday afternoon National Board event on May 8 at the Hilton Anchorage. Martin currently holds the record for the most consecutive Iditarod finishes at 31 races completed in a row, and he has earned 33 total finishes. He is a four-time champion of the race (1992, 1994, 1997, and 2002).

The Iditarod race is a match between man and animal against the wild Alaska tundra. The race was founded as a tribute to Alaska’s history and the role sled dogs played in helping transport mail, supplies, gold, medicine, and other necessities along the historic Iditarod Trail.
