Team 10 of Mike Morgan and Chris Olds was the first Iron Dog team to Nome after a day-long weather delay.

The team clocked in to Nome at 12:42:50 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. Team 6's Brad George and Robby Schachle arrived at 1:06 p.m.

After being held in Unalakleet Tuesday due to poor weather and the desire to have teams crossing Norton Sound in the daylight, teams left Nome starting just before 8:00 a.m. Wednesday.

Channel 2's MK Burgess contributed to this story from Nome.
