Yukon Quest 2020 – Day 15

Yukon Quest map even years

Sled DogRob is about 5 miles from the finish this morning while Olivia is almost 65 miles from Whitehorse.

Olivia arrived and the Red Lantern was extinguished at approximately 10:00PM CST. I can’t give an exact time because the satellite tracker has been saying that she was 365 feet from the finish for a quarter of an hour and she was moving at a speed that would have move her that distance in less than a minute.

Update: the official time is 9:58PM CST.

The Current Standings at 10:00PM CST ( 8:00PM PST):

Finished At Whitehorse
1 Brent Sass (15)
2 Michelle Phillips (11)
3 Cody Strathe (2)
4 Allen Moore (4)
5 Torsten Kohnert (9)
6 Ryne Olson (8)
7 Nora Själin (6)R
8 Richie Beattie (1)
9 Pat Noddin (13)R
10 Rob Cooke (12)
11 Olivia Webster (7)RΦ

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.
