Wasilla is home to the Iditarod Headquarters, which features a museum, gift shop, sled dog rides,  Anchorage is the starting line for this world famous race. The field of dog teams, which grows in number each year, runs to Eagle  River to Check Point 1. After a restart in Wasilla, the mushers leave the  land of highways and bustling activity and head across the Susitna River to Skwentna and then up to Nome. A winter carnival is held in Wasilla in conjunction  with this annual event.
