Iditarod 2023 – Day 10

Iditarod 2023 MapSled DogRyan Redington is a few miles from Safety this morning but is going carefully. There are only six puppies pulling the sled, the absolute minimum number required to be in the race. If any of the dogs is injured, the race is over for the team. He has a 4 hour advantage over Peter Kaiser but he needs to be careful.

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.
