Sasha MicaiahI keep saying this, but I don't care if anyone gets tired of me repeating it....I REALLY appreciate Sebastian's reporting and photography during this race and in years past. He has a way of putting the readers at the race! Thank you again, Sebastian Schnuelle!9 · 2 hours ago
Joe Runyan and Sebastian Schnuelle on snowmachine have left Unalakleet to follow the leaders. My job is here in Unalakleet keeping track of the teams as they arrive and depart the first checkpoint located on the Bering Sea.

Libby HarropLooking at the race standings I note that Joar Leifseth Ulsom left Unalakleet an hour and a half AFTER Robert Sorlie, but arrived at Shaktoolik only one minute behind him! What a huge gain!2 · 3 hours ago
Joe SheaderThe GPS has both Aliy and Jeff way off course from the trail and not yet to Koyuk. Any news on this?1 · 3 hours ago
Jeff PlantingaSorlie looks like a hurting unit. He had the slowest time into Shak by quite a bit, and without any extended stops. He was below 5 MPH the whole way up the hill at the midpoint of the run. By comparison, Aliy didn't drop down to 5 MPH even once the whole way up. So...not looking too good for Robert at this point.3 hours ago
