In THE GREAT ALASKAN RACE, a diphtheria outbreak endangers the lives of children in a remote village in Alaska. With his own daughter's life on the line, champion musher Leonhard Seppala (Brian Presley, who also directed, wrote, edited, and produced the film) volunteers to lead a team of sled dogs to transport life-saving medicine across dangerous terrain in the middle of winter. Facing harsh conditions -- including a blizzard -- Seppala and his dog, Togo, face possible death to travel the most treacherous part of the journey, covering 400 of the nearly 700 miles. The film is based on the true story of Alaska's great serum run of 1925.
