Iditarod 2017 - The Race to the Coast

The Iditarod sled dog race is nearly a week old, and the race for the lead is heating up.

The top five teams are heading towards the coastal village of Unalakleet, the first stop on the Bering Sea coast. And while weather is always a wildcard on the final leg of the race, at this point, the winner would appear to come from this bunch. The teams are all within 3–7 mile of each other.

Mitch Seavey, showing that Father really does know best, has an extremely small lead over his son Dallas. And close behind are Wade Marrs, Nicolas Petit and Norwegian Joar Ulsom.

It is still anybody’s race…
