The racers took off again this morning from the community of Kuujjuarapik. They plan to make it as far as Qitjirivik tonight, where they will set camp for the night. If all goes according to plan they will make it into Umiujaq sometime tomorrow afternoon.
We, unfortunately, had one team scratch. Team 4, Johnny Jr. May and his partner Jacob Cain were able to successfully make it to Kuujjuarapik but decided to end the race here. Juniors team is down 3 dogs due to injuries that occurred earlier on in the race. To avoid further injury and exhaustion to the rest of the team he has made the tough decision to pull out of the race.
Let all give junior and his partner a round of applause for making it all the way out to Chisasibi for this years edition of Ivakkak, and we look forward to seeing you and your team again in the future!The teams hit the trail for Umiujaq
