Mechanical, dog-tracted, human-powered… The roadhouse is involved in Iditarod Trail races since decades and 2021 won’t change it!
The roadhouse serves as checkpoint for the Iron Dog snowmobile race. McGrath is a famous layover, therefore an ideal place to follow the event and support your favorite racers! Book your stay here to attend the Iron Dog Pro Class.
The roadhouse used to be a checkpoint for human-powered races. If the checkpoint is now hosted honorably by residents, we are happy to accommodate supporters of the 2020 Iditarod Trail Invitational race. Book your stay here and support audacious racers!
Every winter the roadhouse serves as a busy logistics outpost for the Iditarod Air Force. We accommodate a large number of volunteers. During the all week we also serve meals to media and visitors all day long.
