Event-driven geographies, landscapes activated by programmed activity, are unique occupations of site that mitigate and utilize the host terrain in advantageous ways. Typically ephemeral in nature, the ‘events’ are flexible and adapt to the geography’s physical characteristics, urbanism, cultural history, and political climate. In the examination of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, hosted across the state of Alaska, lessons of the race’s logistical organization, network, terrain adaptations, and site occupations can inform other instances of site inhabitance, specifically in extra urban localities. These extracted interrogations can be systematized, allowing the Alaskan landscape to absorb the integration of mobility, on site data collection, and tourism in order to expand upon the traditional models of extra urban territories as they are affected by irreversible change.
