04 champ takes Iditarod lead

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – With less than 250 miles to go in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, Mitch Seavey took the lead Sunday after he was first to reach Unalakleet.

The 2004 champion was greeted by dozens of townspeople and awarded $2,500 in gold nuggets and a trophy.

Seavey pulled into Unalakleet at 10:13 a.m., 15 minutes ahead of Aaron Burmeister. Aliy Zirkle who had been leading out Kaltag – the last checkpoint along the Yukon River – slipped to third place.

Seavey’s son, Dallas – the race’s defending champion – was in seventh place Sunday. Four-time champion Martin Buser, who has led much of the race, was in fourth place.
