Lance Mackey won the 2009 Copper Basin 300 Sled Dog Race at 4:41 at Wolverine Lodge on Lake Louise, northwest of Glennallen, Alaska.
For his time on the trail he’ll take home 25% of the $18,000 purse, or $4,500, and his name will be added to the base of the handsome race trophy. Previous winners of the Copper Basin 300, billed as “the toughest 300 miles in Alaska,” are listed at the CB300 website.
Among the front runners who also left the Sourdough checkpoint in the running for first place position were Hans Gatt, Brent Sass, and Allen Moore, three time winner of the CB300.
