Yukon Quest map even years

Sled DogBrent and Michelle are approaching Scroggie Creek. Olivia made it to Dawson early this morning, she won’t be leaving until afternoon tomorrow. Allen Moore and Rob Cooke are the only ones still running with all their dogs in harness.

Nora is the last to leave Dawson tonight. Tomorrow Rob and Richie will be out at about 3:20AM CST. Pat gets to leave at around 5:30AM; Dave at 11AM, Chase just after 3PM (the one hour penalty); and Olivia gets back on the trail at 6:45PM. All times CST, Subtract 2 hours for the local time zone.

The Current Standings at 9:15PM CST ( 7:15AM PST):

2 Michelle Phillips (11)
3 Cody Strathe (2)

10 Pat Noddin (13)R

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.

The Mushers in bold are former winners of the Yukon Quest, the numbers in parentheses are their Bib numbers, and the small “R” indicates a rookie.

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