    Winds are whipping 40mph (-50 with windchill) through the first 20 miles, blowing sleds & snow machines off the trail. Brrr!
    No mushers have arrived at Maclaren. They are expected in around 3:30.
    NOTE: We will be posting race times & race information as we get it either on this page or on
    the Gin Gin blog depending on the access to internet connection & availability
    !



    They should be getting in any time now.

    The wind seems to have died down a bit. http://gingin200.blogspot.com/ are there any rest periods and/or checkpoints along the trail on this race or similar races?

    Jodi won the women's division and Brent won the mens division. I wonder which of them was faster, Jodi or Brent. We'll find out.

    Also, how funny that Ed Hopkins took 3rd in the mens and Michele Phillips took 3rd in the womens. They're married! haha

    Congratulations Jodi and Brent!
