The 2006 Iditarod Dog Race is over with Jeff King winning his fourth of the famously grueling Alaskan dog races. King completed the trek on March 14, 2006, covering the 1,100-mile race with an elapsed time of 9 days, 11 hours and 11 minutes.
The race ended for King and his dog team in Nome, Alaska, just after 1:00 a.m. local time. As we publish this story, the expected runner up is Doug Swingley, who is several hours behind Jeff King.
His win this year makes King, at 50, the oldest musher to win the Iditarod, the world’s longest sled dog race, and one of only four mushers to win four Iditarod dog races.
