Chisholm musher Nathan Schroeder was running in 14th place in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Thursday.
Schroeder, a three-time John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon champion racing in his second Iditarod, arrived at the Galena checkpoint - 396 miles into the 979-mile race from Fairbanks to Nome - at 10:31 a.m. Alaska time Thursday, according to the race website. Schroeder has dropped three dogs from his starting team of 16, and prior to reaching Galena had yet to take the eight-hour or 24-hour rests every musher is required to take at some point in the race.
Seventy-five mushers out of the starting field of 78 remained in the race as of Thursday night.
Iditarod veteran Aaron Burmeister of Nome - who has finished as high as fourth place, in 2012 - was the first musher to leave Galena, at 6:26 a.m. Alaska time Thursday. He spent just 19 minutes at the checkpoint and has yet to take either of his required rests.
Defending champion Dallas Seavey - who has taken an eight-hour rest - was the second musher out of Galena, at 8:48 a.m.
