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.

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.
