Sterling, AK Musher Wins 45th Iditarod in Record Time
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) today offered congratulations to Mitch Seavey and his team on winning the 45th Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
“For six years going, the Seaveys have led the pack in the Last Great Race, a proud distinction for this revered Alaska family,” said Senator Sullivan. “I’m sure Dallas isn’t excited to see his impressive three-year winning streak and all-time speed record come to an end, but he must be very proud that his dad was the one to do it. Congratulations, Mitch and team, on a record-breaking Iditarod victory! Best wishes to the remaining mushers and teams making their way to Nome.”
Mitch Seavey crossed the finish line in Nome at 3:40pm AKT with 11 dogs. He completed the race in 8 days, 3 hours and 40 minutes.
