February 4th & 5th, 2021 Susitna Landing will become Checkpoint 1 for the Willow 300 Sled Dog Race offered by the Willow Dog Mushers Association. The W300 is a qualifying race for the Iditarod. Expect to see veteran and rookie mushers as they make their way north along the Susitna River Trail to Susitna Landing for a 4-hour layover before continuing north on the trail to the old Forks Roadhouse checkpoint in Trapper Creek-Petersville, then turn south for the homestretch to Sheep Creek Lodge.
Kashwitna Coffee will be open to help you warm up with a piping hot cocoa or your favorite espresso drink, hot and cold foods and snacks. Help us support our local Alaskan and International Mushers in their quest to conquer the trail!
