YQ: "Two More Runs"
At 7.02am, just under four hours from arrival time, Allen took all 13 team mates down the trail.
As Allen was leaving he reminded us, himself and the dogs: "Two More Runs". This next run is around 75 miles then at Braeburn all the teams have a mandatory eight hour stop before the final 100 mile push to the finish line in Whitehorse.
This is a massive deal for Allen's Yukon Quest rookies. They are more than 800 miles into a highly competitive 1000 miles race and they are still going strong. It's exciting and inspiring.
It's all a bit of a blur 800 miles in!
The handler crew will now sleep for a few hours here before we go to Braeburn Lodge, home of the famous cinnamon buns and plate-sized burgers!
