Aniak Musher Crosses Iditarod Finish Line
Richie Diehl drove his dogs into Deshka Landing at around 3:30 p.m. on March 15, the ninth sled dog team to cross the Iditarod finish line.
The Aniak musher had nine dogs in harness. Dallas Seavey won the race earlier the same day.
Bethel musher Victoria Hardwick is bringing up the rear much further back on the trail, mushing towards the Rohn checkpoint. Hardwick is no stranger to that position, having earned the Red Lantern Award in the 2019 Iditarod for being the last musher to make it to Nome.
