Solstice 50 Results

WOOHOO! Ally and the Red Team finished in 4th spot in the Solstice 50 in 4 hours, 31:09; with Chris and the Red and Black team just a few seconds behind at 4 hours, 31:30 in 5th position.

These are fantastic results for these two teams with a bunch of two-year olds getting some excellent experience! We're really proud of all 24 dogs and two mushers. Thanks to the support team also!!

Check out these great pics taken by Sebastian Schnuelle of the two SPK teams.

Great Job Aliy & Chris. There are 162 pictures on TRDMA's Facebook page and I've only made it through about half of them. There is one of Chris that has a decent picture of Pepe and Champ in wheel and they are two my fan club dogs. I loved it! its so awesome that the young ones are getting some experience and having fun running with the more experienced dogs.
