Iditarod 2023 – Day 13

Iditarod 2023 MapSled DogJason Mackey (20) only has 5 puppies in harness. I was sure that the minimum was 6. I’ll have to research it. Update the rule is now 5 puppies on the towline as a minimum. They must must have changed it when they went to 14 instead of 16 as the maximum.

Looks like The Φ (Red Lantern) will come to Nome today. Jason Mackey (20) ended the race when he brought the Red Lantern under the Burled Arch in Nome at 8:03PM tonight.

Well everyone agrees that he died on March 17th, but the year is subject to debate. This is his feast day on the Catholic calendar. Enjoy as you are wont.
