Here are the unofficial results of the 8 dog X-mas race sponsored by the Ranki Inlet Qimmuksiqtiit (dog mushers association).
It was -35 degrees Celsius, light wind, trail was from Rankin Inlet 1/3 over sea ice and 2/3 over the land, return to Rankin, about 25 miles total, kinda soft and rough trail, about 1 mile visibility at 1 p.m and by 2 p.m it was less than 1/4 mile visibility. Race started at 1 p.m. (after church!).
There was a husky class for this race also, and Jack Kabvitok won the husky class.
