When will they reach Nome?

This is a forum for general discussion of dogsled racing, with a special focus on Alaska, and is open to all. It is expected that this area will see the most activity during the months leading up to, and during the annual Iditarod sled dog race. Pictures from races can be posted here. Hosting is provided by the Bering Strait School District (BSSD), and the area is open all year. Care to be one of our volunteer moderators? Contact us!

When will they reach Nome?

Postby mira » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:59 pm

So.. in 2013, last time they ran southern route, they used 38 hours from departue Koyuk to Nome. Jeff King's time out, Mitch time in to Nome.

In 2016, Dallas used around 30 hours from Koyuk to Nome.

I guess this year, it will be closer to 2013 than 2016? Other predictions?
