Welcome to Idita-Walk 2013! The great walking adventure!
The Idita-Walk is an event to promote
physical fitness in the spirit of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod Sled Dog Race
is 1049 miles long beginning at Anchorage, Alaska and finishing in Nome, Alaska.
To complete the Idita-Walk, simply walk an average of 30 minutes
a day for 35 days between February 1, 2013 to
March 31, 2013 for a total of
1049 minutes (any combination of minutes and days will work - just reach 1049 during the 59 day event!).
All proceeds go to Camp Bronson maintenance, scholarships, and Nome youth-related programs.
All paid registrants receive a collectible Idita-Walk 2013 lapel pin (current + last 3 designs shown below).
Other must-have Idita-Walk 2013 collectible items may be purchased from our online store!

Many walkers participate for the pure pleasure of getting
out-of-doors and enjoying nature, and for breathing fresh air and obtaining needed exercise. Some people do it for health reasons (many)
as well as to lose weight (click or visit the 'Health Benefits > No Pain Required'
link in the menu above)!
