March 14, 2016 —After the ninth full day of competition at the 2016 Iditarod, the standings of the top ten mushers are as follows:
1. Dallas Seavey reached Nome Tuesday morning in record time, for his fourth win in five years. His sled raced with only 6 dogs. At the finish line his two lead dogs, Reef and Tide, were crowned with garlands of yellow roses. As is traditional with the iditarod, it is the dogs who are named winners of the race, not the musher. The time registered was 8 days 11 hours, 20 minutes, 16 seconds.
2. Mitch Seavey, the father of Dallas Seavey, came in approximately 45 minutes after his son. The Seaveys’ teams finished 1st and 2nd in the 2015 Idiatrod, as well.
