Iditarod® Update

At the halfway mark, a woman takes home the gold!

"Checkers huddled around the inflatable palm trees set up as a joke at this remote tent camp on Wolf Kill Slough were expecting Paul Gebhardt as dawn broke this morning. Instead, they heard a woman’s voice chirping across the snow-covered swamp speckled with black spruce. It was DeeDee Jonrowe, and nobody was more surprise than she to be the winner of the GCI Dorothy Page Halfway award, which comes with $3,000 in gold nuggets… “This is probably the first time in the history of the Iditarod that the award was won by a person who didn’t even know they were in first,” said Bruce Lee, the Yukon Quest champion, former Iditarod musher…"

Considerin' Jonrowe almost lost her team on the second day of racin', that's quite a feat.

More on the real heroes of the race:

Bear - Lead            Shy Girl - Lead

Monty - Lead               Babe - Lead
