Iditarod 2018 – Day 13

Iditarod 2018 MapSled DogSteve Watkins and Tara Cicatello were withdrawn at Unalakleet passing the Red Lantern to Magnus Kaltenborn. The race marshal invoked Rule 36.

Jim Lanier and Scott Janssen scratched at Safety after calling for assistance outside the checkpoint because of weather conditions that stalled them. Jim felt his personal health was not good enough to care for his team, and Scott stayed out of concern for Jim.

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.
