The mushers are a little two hours into the race which departed from Fairbanks this year. The top five mushers out of the box are Ryan Redington, Misha Wiljes from the Czech Republic, Cody Strathe, Linwood Fielder, and Laura Neese. The first checkpoint will be Nenana 71 miles away which will result in another post and more standings. Mush on, mush on!
