In what is shaping up to be an extremely close race three mushers headed out of Unakaleet within thirty minutes of each other. Two more teams arrived in Unakaleet behind the three leaders but still within striking distance for a first place. All these teams look strong with the dogs showing plenty of spunk. Four teams have scratched and are out of the race. In a surprise move Aaron Burmeister is leading the pack followed by Dallas Seavey and Ali Zircle. John Baker beat Mike Seavey by three hours into Unakaleet . After a short break to feed the dogs and a little rest they will back on the trail to try to catch the leaders.
