Iditarod 2018 – Day 5

Iditarod 2018 MapSled DogJoar made it to Iditarod and the Half Way prize and is settling in for a 24 hour+ layover as Nicolas, Mitch, Aaron, and Wade have finished theirs and are back in the race.

It looks like Joar’s bet isn’t going to help him much in the overall race as Nicolas and Mitch showed up while he has time to go on his layover. They can rest for 5 hours and still leave before he can.

The Mushers in bold are former winners of the Iditarod, while italics indicates Yukon Quest winners. The numbers in parentheses are their Bib numbers. The small “R” indicates a total rookie, while the small “Q” indicates an Iditarod rookie who has completed a Yukon Quest.

These are the official standings. That means they are official, not that they are correct. Things jump around a lot as people decide to update the standings. This problem is especially bad in the back of the pack, as no one bothers to update those standings when the lead is changing.

This post will be updated during the day, and the map changed on all posts to reflect the current situation.
