There are many ways to follow along with the 2009 Iditarod. Here are a couple sites I've found helpful for updates on the race, the dogs and more.
The official Iditarod site has current standings, daily photo galleries and guides for teachers. For those who want more, there's the option of becoming an Iditarod Insider and receiving real-time updates, video and GPS tracking. (Fees begin at $19.95).
The Anchorage Daily News has extensive online coverage that includes a musher gallery, a raw feed with live standings, reader-submitted photos and news about the race. You can sign up for an Iditarod newsletter that's sent twice daily.
