Onto The Bering Sea Coast
Several news agencies talked to her while she was in Unk and she has told them that the run from Kaltag to Unk did not quite go to plan but I remember in interviews before the start of the race when reporters asked her about strategy and she said that she doesn't have just one - she will change it according to weather, trail and, most importantly, how the dogs are doing so we're not too worried about her having to use "plan C" - she is savvy enough to be able to alter her plans accordingly.

Allen and team arrived into Kaltag at 6.21pm and have stopped for a rest. They are still running around the middle of the pack which is right where he wants to be. Once he leaves Kaltag it is likely they will camp along the trail, perhaps at Tripod Flats and/or Old Woman Cabins before making their way to the Bering Sea Coast.
Our friend Cody Strathe from Squid Acres Kennel met Aliy in Unk and sent through this wonderful picture of her lovely smiling face!
