Jackie Larson wins 50 Mile Challenge
12 teams competed on a fast 50 mile trail from Bethel, up the Gweek River and back today, with Jackie Larson besting the field. It was a beautiful day on the Kuskokwim and another great race!
We'd like to acknowledge two individuals who helped recover lost teams during the race. Matt Scott, who was a spectator today and Nate DeHaan, who stopped his own race to assist, both stopped and held dog teams who had been separated from their mushers.
Full results below, as well as some great photos by Matt Scott (we missed him on the trail today but it turns out Matt's a pretty good guy to have on the sidelines too!)
Next Race - The Campout Race, next weekend! More on that soon.
