2011 7th Place Midnight Run Team

Our 2nd team was scratched before the race due to extremely dangerous trail conditions & Larry ran the main team. It was the most dangerous trail he's ever run! The trail marking was terrible, he took 7 to 8 wrong turns, broke his drag pad before all the hills so only had his metal brake! There is a lake crossing where it was complete glare ice with no trail. There was a lot of time wasted there to get our leaders to stop trying to cross it in the wrong direction!! This was a physically & mentally challenging trail for dogs & musher. I was so happy to see Larry & the team in one piece after all that!! Larry said it was like a 3 hour car accident!
