As teams make their way up to the turnaround near Bogus Creek, it appears that Nic Petit, Richie Diehl and Isaac Underwood are running very close together at the front of the pack. The turnaround point is not a checkpoint and we only expect very limited communication from there.
After the turnaround they'll return down the same trail towards Tuluksak #2.
