Alaskan Iditarod 2013


Excerpt from Mitch Seavey and Beth Bragg report in The Anchorage Daily News on Alaskan Iditarod 2013: ‘…The Sterling musher steadily pulled away from Zirkle on the 67-mile run from White Mountain, where just 13 minutes separated the two mushers in the afternoon. Led by Tanner, a 6-year-old, orange-brown husky who is a kennel favorite, Seavey coasted down Nome’s Front Street at 10:39 p.m. “I gotta go congratulate my lead dog Tanner,” Seavey said after his team came to a stop. “He’s probably the best I’ve ever had. “Tanner is happy to be a sled dog and he makes it look easy.” Seavey’s winning margin of 23 minutes, 39 seconds made it the fourth-closest race in Iditarod history. Seavey finished in 9 days, 7 hours, 39 minutes, 56.’ Winning Musher Is Oldest Champion In Iditarod History
