Seavey Reaches Takotna First, Declares 24-Hour Layover

Sign reading “Iditarod 2018: Welcome to Takotna.”

Mitch Seavey arrived first to Takotna checkpoint in a light snow Tuesday night. Seavey was in a good mood and unusually talkative as he declared his 24 hour rest. He frequently uses Takotna for his 24, and parked his team in a preferred spot tucked just behind the community center.
