Rick Casillo finished 28th in this year’s Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Alaska. He completed the course in 9 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes.
Rick stated, “I am happy with our race and the dogs looked awesome at the finish. I had to deal with a bug in my team the last few days which caused us to scale back a bit. It was disappointing because we had a team to really jump up in the standings. Overall I am happy with our run and some of these dogs are the toughest sled dogs I have ever run. I came through pretty good overall, just bit of frostbite on my fingers and face”. See complete story and more photos in the March 23, 2017 issue of the Alden Advertiser.
