No official "out times" from Kaltag, but tracking shows Chuck Schaeffer nearing Old Woman on way back to Unalakleet with DeeDee a couple miles behind. Aaron and Pete are a couple miles behind her and the rest are not far back. With the front runners running at 8+ mph and a 30 mph tailwind we should expect them into Unalakleet before noon or soon after.

Update from the Trailbreakers: Posted 18:50 02/07/13 - Trailbreakers just reached Shaktoolik. Ground storm on the flats outside Shaktoolik. Trail well marked. Forecast is more favorable for tonight with light winds for tomorrow.


VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE! The PJM/NS450 Posted 13:00 02/08/13 - The PJM/Norton Sound 450 committee and the 8 race mushers have reached a decision regarding continuation of the race. With very cold temperatures and stormy conditions present and in the forecast, and with the Iditarod start so close, we have decided to significantly shorten the race course. Our main concern is for dog and musher safety. There will be an official restart in Shaktoolik at 2pm with racers leaving for the finish line in Unalakleet in the order they arrived at 2 minute intervals. It will be a 40 mile sprint to the finish. There will be some adjustment in the purse which will be announced soon.

UPDATE: To be clear to all the fans following this unique race. This has gone from a "450" to a "40" (maybe replacing the Rondy). The mushers and organizers agreed that considering the circumstances the race would restart with all mushers at zero and race for the gold! The staggered start times will be considered in the time enroute to determine the 8 places.




IT'S A "RE-PETE!!!" Pete Kaiser wins back to back PJM/NS450 races. In another close finish he edges Martin Buser by 3 minutes elapsed time on the sprint finish from Shaktoolik. Aaron Burmeister was only minutes behind for third. Gerry Willomitzer and DeeDee Jonrowe followed. The rest are soon to come in to wrap up this year's slightly odd race.
