K300 race weekend photos

A busy couple of days. The K300, Bogus Creek 150 and Akiak Dash all got started yesterday afternoon without problems, with the Akiak Dash finishing by around 8.30p.m and the Bogus Creek winners starting to come back at 8.30a.m this morning. The K300 leaders will arrive in the next few hours.

I struggled with cameras, but got a few good photos. DeeDee Jonrowe starting out the K300:

The guy that’s won the K300 more than anyone else, Jeff King:
