JUNEAU, Alaska (Reuters) - Alaska's famed Iditarod Trail Sled Dog race is due to get underway on Saturday with dozens of mushers and dog teams beginning their near 1,000-mile (1,609-km) journey through the state's snowy and sometimes unforgiving wilderness.

This untimed 11-mile (17.7-km) ceremonial start serves as a curtain raiser for a timed competition that commemorates a 1925 mission that delivered diphtheria serum to Nome by sled-dog relay.

The timed portion of the race, which typically lasts nine days or longer, begins on Monday in Fairbanks, about 300 miles (482 km) away.

Something crashed to the ground in the distance. The clatter and bang of it carried through the deep roar of the wind. 

I tucked myself into the dubious shelter of the stairwell as the rattle of debris echoed through the stairs.
