Next Stop, Nome
Tuesday morning, many of the leading teams are on layover in Unalakleet, having raced in the early morning hours down the Yukon River from Ruby or Galena.
Today after coming off their 8 hour layovers, the teams will sprint up the western coast of Alaska toward the Halfway City of Nome. First prize for the fastest team to Nome is $10,000 presented by Donlin Gold. The City of Nome and Bering Sea Lions Club will also present several thousand dollars in Contingency Prizes.
Last year, Dustin VanMeter and Marc McKenna took home the Gold!
At the rate things are going, it looks like there’s a good chance that Team #8, Tyson and Tyler may be the winners of the Donlin Gold Halfway Gold Rush Prize.
