FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Kuskokwim 300, one of the toughest dog-sled races in Alaska, took place over the weekend.
Although the race did see some changes this year, the results featured a familiar face.
The 300 mile race, which featured two 150 mile laps, was won by Peter Kaiser for the fourth year in a row.
Kaiser finished the race in 38 hours, 47 minutes and 26 seconds to come out on top.
Joar Ulsom took second place with a 40 hour, 21 minute, and 31 second time, while Jeff King took the bronze medal spot in 42 hours, 49 minutes, and 55 seconds.
The race had to change from their normal route because of the recent warm weather and rain in Bethel, and saw several veterans such as Aaron Burmeister, Jessie Holmes, Brent Sass, Cim Smyth, and Hugh Neff all scratch from the race.
Kaiser will now turn his focus to this year's Iditarod, which is set to start in Anchorage on March 3rd.
