Jr. Iditarod Dream
Do you know about the Jr. Iditarod? I do, and I’m also going to talk about it. I hope you read on and enjoy my essay. Thank you!
I’m going to talk about why racers must have two pounds of food per dog. Racers must have two pounds of food per dog because everybody can have the same amount of food and it doesn’t have to be unfair. It’s also about weight, making sure all the weight is even.
There is a checkpoint. A checkpoint is for making sure the dogs and racers check into, so the dogs and racers can start the race. The dogs and racers also go to the checkpoint to see if all the dogs and racers are okay and that there aren’t any injuries.
The ice and snow is so cold for the dog’s feet, racers check their feet to make sure all of the dog’s feet are okay. The racers check the dogs because the racers want to make sure all of the dog’s feet don’t have any cracks in their feet.
Do you know how many miles the dogs run before they get to the half-point? I know… the racers race 79 miles to the half-point, then wait 10 hours at the half-point and then they race 79 miles back to the finish line! The racers wait 10 hours at the half-point because the racers want to check if the dogs don’t have splits in their feet, they eat, and they have to get a little bit of rest!
I hope you learned about the Jr. Iditarod, and how racers and dogs stay safe. I also learned a couple facts about the Jr. Iditarod, and I hope you learned from me. Thank you for reading by essay about the Jr. Iditarod!
