Pete and the Team are First into the Tuluksak checkpoint and 4 hour mandatory layover!
After arriving at 23:57, the Team will be checked over by the K300 Veterinarian Team and then sent to rest in anticipation of the race to the 2020 K300 Finish Line!
Interview after interview has told of the amazing trail, but times for races are a bit slower than last year. Last year Matt Failor had the fastest Kalskag to Tuluksak run at 4:45 almost 30 minutes faster than Pete’s 5 hour 14 minute run this evening.
The Bogus Creek 150 times were also just a bit slower than last year. Not sure what to make of it, but in any case we are looking now at a 8:30-9:00am finish unless conditions change.
Close on the heels of Team Kaiser are Matt Failor and Richie Diehl who have been alternating position according to the tracker and are about 2 miles behind.
Weather is predicted to stay the same with a few snow showers closer to morning. Temperatures have risen a bit with Bethel reporting 4 above at this hour.
It is going to be an exciting finish, so get some rest and we will see you at the Finish Line!
Go Team Kaiser!!
