... and 350 miles is the short course. 1,100 is full course!
And reading the article LINK, 350 miles is the short course to get more participants. The real Iditarod Trail Invitational is a full 1,100 miles. Only 28 men and 2 women have finished it in 9 years of racing.

Think I'll decline the invitation if I get one by mistake.

The most I've done in the winter up here is 40 miles and that was in Anchorage and nearly did me in. Winter riding, esp. out on that exposed country, is unlike anything most people can imagine. If it's not interstellar cold it's chinooks and muck. You never get a brake, and if you push too hard Alaska pushes right back.
