Two Rivers Update

Aliy and the Red Team are in to Two Rivers Lodge at 4.36pm making her run time over the 50 mile leg 4 hours 22 minutes. She said all is okay; she had a major tangle along the way that took some time to untangle. She was on an icy stretch of road at the time to add a complication! But they carried on none the worse for wear.

The race rules have each musher in the two hundred mile race taking 10 hours spread out over the three checkpoints (in half hour increments) so you will see different run/rest strategies emerge throughout the race. Teams that take less rest here may look to be way ahead but they will need to make up that rest later in the race. The time differential, that makes up for the difference in starting times, is served at the Pleasant Valley Store checkpoint.

At this point we are unsure how long Aliy and her team will stay at Two Rivers. We'll keep you updated


Two Rivers Lodge

We are awaiting Chris and Wes - they will be a wee way off yet as Chris started as the last musher in the 200 and Wes was 3rd last of the 100s.

The TRDMA website has a leaderboard with checkpoint in and out times so you can follow along.

I am working on some videos and photos from the start so watch this space! More updates soon as we get information.

Good to learn of this. Most attention seems to be on the Northern Lights 300 right now so go, Two Rivers racers--especially SPK!!
