All mushers in the nearly 1,000-mile race through Alaska must take three mandatory rest periods: a 24-hour layover at any checkpoint, an eight-hour layover somewhere along the river Yukon and another eight-hour stopover at White Mountain, which is 77 miles from the finish line.

Five mushers and their teams of dogs arrived Wednesday, and none had left Thursday morning. Brent Sass was the first musher to reach Cripple on Wednesday afternoon, winning $3,000 in gold nuggets for the feat.

He was followed in Cripple about three hours later by defending champion Dallas Seavey, who is trying to win his sixth championship. It would be the record ever achieved by a musher in the most famous sled dog race in the world.
