Humans and Reindeer Face Off in First-Ever Anchorage Race
With inspiration obviously rooted in Barcelona's running of the bulls comes Anchorage's take on the beloved sport.

Alaska's largest city's first-ever reindeer run went off without a hitch: no reindeer, runners or bystanders were harmed in the race.
