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:
Martin Buser coming out the startline (currently leading coming out of Tuluksak at the moment):
The guy that’s won the K300 more than anyone else, Jeff King:
On to the Bogus Creek 150, a young musher leading the way:

By the finish, Casie would come home 8th and Marvin 4th. Next, Sam Jackson already needing a cigarette break on his way to a 9th place finish:
