UP 200 Midnight Run results & USA defeats Russia

Just a few quick important Facebook statuses from our page we’d like to share!

The Up200 and Midnight Run mushers are rolling in. In first place from L’amable, Ont. Canada with a time of 10hrs, 43mins, and 45seconds – Jacob Golton. 2nd place: Kris Sampson of S. River, Ont. Canada with a time of 10hrs, 43mins, and 50seconds. That’s right – just 5 short seconds apart and both mushers live within 300 miles of each other! Congratulations to all the mushers! . . . and the dogs!!!

Barry Melrose breaks it down – How did the United States edge a win over Russia? In miracle fashion – an epic shootout. It was kind of like watching Rocky knock out the Soviet boxer Ivan Drago… like Rocky IV on ice. The final score of the US Victory: 3-2. Hooray Team USA!
