Chris and his Red & Black Team have finished the Northern Lights 300! Good job team!

Schmoe and Scout led the team over the line and Steve managed to catch this quick snap of them. All the dogs have had a meal and are now in the dog truck having a nap, as is Chris.

The tracker information tells us that they did indeed stop for a couple hours enroute to the finish. My very rough “back of an envelope” calculation has them resting almost half of their total time. At this stage we are unsure of official times or their finishing position.

We are very excited to learn more about the race on their return home later this evening.
