The Iron Dog Expedition Class is a non competitive trail ride that can be equally as tough and rewarding as what the Pro’s do. It gives participants valuable experience and a taste of what racing the Pro Class could be like. Expedition riders launch their adventure from Big Lake, Alaska and finish in Nome. Teams are required to be a minimum of two persons on their own snowmachines. There are no specific requirements for the brand, CC or type of snowmachine when participating in the Expedition Class.
Expedition Class participants encounter much of the same challenges of the Pro Class without the competitive pressure of the race. The teams in this class start two days before the Pro Class and meet up with them in Nome. A Halfway Pro Class and finishing Expedition Class “Celebration Banquet” is held Tuesday evening in Nome.
