In 2004, Mitch Seavy won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Alaska.
The total distance travel by dog team during this race is
approximately 1,100 miles and takes anywhere from 8/9 days plus to
complete.  I would like to know what was Mitch Seavy's run-rest
schedule during the race.  I want to know where he stopped to rest his
dogs, how long he stopped and how long he ran his dogs.  This will
likely be different from the start of the race, to the middle and to
the finish.  I don't know if my questions can be answered but I can
only wait and see.  Thanks

I do not need any details for 2006 as I already have that information.
 I need more details in regards to the 2004 race for Seavy especially
regarding his run/rest schedule during the race.  And even more, is
very long runs and low rest.  The information I am looking for is
usually information that cannot be obtained through strait analysis of
the posted results on these race coverage sites.  That information
would have had to come strait from the source (Seavy) or somebody
close to the source maybe in the form of a race diary he might have
written and posted somewhere or a in depth interview with Mr. Seavy. 
I have read the articles written about him that year as well as the
race results from different sites but cannot seem to get the fine
details on his schedule.  Also, I wasn't able to find a race diary on
the Seavy website or any articles from interviews with him from
on-line newspapers in Alaska.  I haven't had a chance to look closely
at the site you provide (Cynthia-ga) but maybeit is there.  I will
look at it ASAP and advise you... thank you very mush!!!

I found the 2004 race stats at the official site, but it only gives ONE time!

Does this help at all?  (I'm expecting no)

Wait!  I found some by trying each checkpoint!  

Check these out then tell me what you need:

2004 Yentna

There is one checkpoint between the one above and this:

2004 Finger Lake

Does this help?  (thinking maybe)
