Iditarod Update #2


Race map credit: Alaska Dispatch News

As of 09:46am Monday, two time Iditarod winner, Mitch Seavey, was the only musher out of Koyuk. Nicolas Petit had arrived at Koyuk, approximately 45 minutes after Seavey had left. Defending champion, Dallas Seavey, Mitch’s son, was out of Shaktoolik, and running in third.

When asked about Mitch’s performance, Dallas had this to say about his dad: “He’s beating the crap out of us and everybody else in this race. I’m not upset, I’m impressed and kudos to him”. Dallas Seavey is looking for his fifth Iditarod title.

There is 171 miles of trail between the village of Koyuk and the burled arch in Nome.
