Teams have been pulling into the Tolsona checkpoint, so we have some run times to share with you. Allen had a very speedy run with the SPK Black Team and picked up enough time to now be in the lead by 7 minutes. That’s not much in a field this good, but it’s still a lead!
Aliy and the SPK Red Team continue to turn in very solid times and are still in the hunt in seventh place. The handlers report that all the dogs are eating well and making the most of their checkpoint rest.
In the early morning hours, the teams will get up for a hot meal and head down the trail to Mendeltna about 50 miles away. By the time we’re having morning coffee, we should have more information to share.
Those of you who are CB300 veterans know it is always a nail-biting race to the finish, and this year promises to live up to that reputation… Go SPK!
