Aliy is on the move again. After completing her mandatory 24 hour layover, she took a team of 13 dogs on the trail to Ruby. She dropped Butterscotch and Tony. Butters is already in Anchorage, beating even Bisquit back and he was dropped in Ophir. Aliy left the checkpoint in the midst of a large group of front runners coming through. Temperatures are reportedly right around freezing. If Aliy has to stop along the trail before reaching Ruby due to weather, she may well just pick up gear and continue on towards Galena.

Allen went through Ophir a little before midnight yesterday. He didn’t drop and dogs, still running with the 13 he left his 24 hour with. He will certainly stop on his way to Cripple, probably splitting the run into two parts. He will most likely reach there by 6pm to 8pm, depending on trial conditions.
