We are very excited to see that Chris and the R&Bs are into the final checkpoint of Yentna! They pulled in at 10.27 this morning and they have a mandatory six hour rest stop here so can leave at 4.27pm at the earliest. He still has 12 athletes with him at this stage.
The conservative version of the race plan from here has the team resting during the final leg so, again, don't be alarmed if you see the tracker stationary for a few hours. Chris will assess the team and the trail conditions and make the call whether to stop.
Steve and Decaf have become good buddies in the few days they have had together!
Officials are hoping to fly the returned dogs back to Willow today so we will let you know once we hear more.
