As this year’s Iditarod reached a late turning point in a jumble of the leaders, Dallas Seavey was unaware he was approaching his second victory coming into the finish line. Charging up the chute just two minutes later, Aliy Zirkle was also unaware of how close she was to catching the leader.
Both logged finishes just after 4am this morning, officially checked in as follows:
Dallas Seavey: 8d 13h 4m 19s, arriving at 4:04am
Aliy Zirkle: 8d 13h 6m 41s, arriving at 4:06am
