Jeff King crossed the finish line on Front Street in Nome at 4:11am CST (1:11am local time) with a winning time of 9 days, 11 hours, 11 minutes, and 36 seconds. As of this posting Doug Swingley has already come in with a second place finish. Paul Gebhardt, DeeDee Jonrowe, and John Baker aren’t far behind and I expect there will be multiple finishers today and over the next several days.
My wife pulled an all-nighter so she could watch the winner cross the finish line via our Internet connection. She’s ecstatic.
You can watch the finishers come in yourself on your Internet connection on the Nome-Cam set up at the finish line. Go to the Iditarod home page and there’s a link for the finish line camera over on the right side of the page.
