Race Update

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to let you know that things with the race are going well overall.  We have over half over the mushers that have come through checkpoint 7 and are on their way back.

On a different note:

There has been a dog mortality shortly after the race started.  The event is under evaluation.  No names are being released at this time.  There is no evidence of musher error.  Our lead veterinarian will give us more information as he knows it.
