ID: Black Team Out of Elim

It's 10.00am Alaska time.

Allen still has 12 team mates with him and they left Elim at 9am. A look at his GPS analytics shows he's back on his regular run/rest schedule that he kept up throughout the race.

The next checkpoint for them is White Mountain where they take an eight hour rest before the final push to Nome.



We've calculated their arrival in Nome to be early afternoon on Thursday. We can't wait!!

I'll bet that is one family looking forward to being reunited! Must be torture for Alan to be away from Aliy!

Go Black Team!

Hope the whole gang are holding up okay and that the winds have died down for his trip from White Mountain to Safety.

I am sure Aliy will be in need of a great bit Allen hug...and Allen will be ready for a good rest!

Just a great couple of people in my book! Hooray for Red and Black teams!!!!!!!
