Meanwhile, the leader board has Dallas Seavey holding the #1 spot, having pulled into Elim (race mile 856) around the same time the twins reached Unalakleet Monday night. He's running a team of 11 dogs. Not far behind him and reported out of Koyuk include the likes of Burmeister, Mitch Seavey, and Aliy Zirkle. There are still 71 of the original 78 teams on the trail. The red lantern is back in Huslia, taking our leaders-to-laggard spread out to nearly 380 miles.
We've got 7 days, 17 hours and change on the clock since the restart in Fairbanks. With the leaders only 123 miles and one final 8hr mandatory stop in White Mountain away from the finish, a winner within the next 24 hours is entirely feasible. That also means we could be looking at a new race record. Stay tuned!
