As we’re gearing up for this year’s Iditarod finish (which we expect to happen in less than 24 hours!), we’re also decompressing from this Saturday’s fast-and-furious running of the Nome-Golovin Snowmachine Race.
In case you missed our live coverage Saturday afternoon, here’s a handful of our live finishes, with competitors from Nome and elsewhere, and lots of photos from the start/finish line. (Keep scrolling down; there’s lots to see!)
