Blizzard conditions hampered the end of the 50-mile Holiday Classic as Raymond Alexie cruised to victory with an elapsed time of 4 hours and 18 minutes. Jackie Larson finished second in 4 hours and 46 minutes followed by Pete Kaiser in 4 hours and 54 minutes. Full results below.
At about 5pm, after several top finishers reported difficulty following the trail and concern for those behind them, race organizers made the call to instruct handlers to go out on the trail, find their teams and assist them however necessary to ensure everyone's safety. Fortunately, all teams made it to the finish line. Thanks to the several volunteers and passers-by who went out on the trail in the storm and assisted those mushers who needed it. Thanks as well to the many who called to offer their help.
Next race is the Bogus Creek 150 on January 15th. We'll be posting details on that soon.
