Iditarod 2021 – Day 8

Iditarod 2021 MapSled Dog[[!!Don’t forget the time change!!]]

Dennis Kananowicz (8) made the decision to scratch at McGrath ‘in the best interests of his team”. Dennis was down to 11 puppies.

I’m going to shut down early because they are only interested the front of the race and that won’t change until the morning.

Dallas has a mandatory 8 hour rest before making the final run to Deshka Landing.

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.
