1) Nome is north west from Anchorage. Takotna to Cripple goes through the Ophir checkpoint. Kaltag to Unalakleet is in a south west directions.
2) Kaltag to Nulato and Unalakleet to Kaltag will take you northeast.
3) Northwest.
4) Eagle river.
5) Ophir and Iditarod.
6) Shwentna and Yentna.
7) A compass could tell you which way was which on your map and your map could tell you where you are so you could fallow the trail on your map.

Part #2
1) The snow would melt and make it harder for the musher's and their dogs to pull the sled across the course.
2) The mushers could be trying to run away from the lava while trying to stay on track but the lava would probaly catch up to them and burn them.
3) The ash will probaly spread as far as it can down the hill.
4) They will have to look at the valcano before the race and take some tests before the race to starts and if it does erupt during the race people will have to find some where to take cover.
