Dallas Seavey won his second Iditarod sled-dog race in three years on Tuesday, unseating his father, Mitch, as defending champion while breaking the race’s three-year-old record.
Mush! Mush! Mush! Mitch Seavey, 53, became the oldest champion of the 2013 Iditarod Great Sled Race on Tuesday. The win comes a year after his son became the youngest winner.
Heralded as the “Last Great Race,” mushers and their dogs take on a grueling 1,000-mile sled-dog race track from Anchorage to Nome in Alaska. The first race began on March 3, 1973 and finished 32 days later.
