ANCHORAGE -

Four-time Iditarod champion Lance Mackey is set to compete in the 2015 Iditarod race after sitting out in 2014.

According to the Iditarod Trail Committee's Facebook page, Mackey signed up for the 2015 race at Saturday's volunteer picnic and sign-up event.

Mackey won four consecutive Iditarod races from 2007-2010, and is also a four-time Yukon Quest champion.  In 2007, the musher became the first to ever win the Quest and the Iditarod in the same year.  In 2008 he defended his titles in both races, also making for his fourth consecutive Quest title.
