Jeff King guides his team during the 2006 Iditarod Trail Dog Sled Race in Alaska. Racers, called mushers, and their teams run from the small town of Willow to Nome, a distance of about 1,850 kilometers (1,150 miles). The race usually takes between eight and 15 days. King won the 2006 Iditarod—his fourth championship.
