And we have a winner! Congratulations to Cim Smyth and team on their first place finish! :)

Jeff and team arrived back into Kotzebue 46 minutes behind Cim, for a great 2nd place finish! Woo hoo! err... we mean Yabba Dabba Do!

John Baker finished in 3rd place at 8:48am!

Annnnd, who's it going to be for 4th place?!?! The tracker shows Kristin Bacon of Bacon's Acres' Kennel about 27 miles out, with Ken Anderson and Tim Pappas following closely. This could be a race to the finish for these three teams! Go Kristin!!

Jeff is in Kotzebue, looking for coffee, hoping for a nap and a much needed shower - then down to watch the remaining teams arrive. :)

Stay tuned...!!

Race Update!

Jeff and team followed Cim Smyth into the Selawik checkpoint - Cim in at 4:00pm and Jeff just ten minutes behind him at 4:10pm.
John Baker, arriving at 5:31pm, was the third team into the checkpoint.

Kristin (Bacon's Acres' Kennel) Bacon, is running a great race and is just outside of Selawik, and will be the 5th musher in!

Jeff and Kristin are the only two mushers in the race that are still running a full team of 12 dogs. ;) And not to be forgotten, Kristin received the Humanitarian Award in this years' Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race! A successful finish here and she will be qualified to run the #Iditarod next year!

Stay tuned race fans....!!
