Thanks for voting on the new poll. It looks like the results are fairly evenly distributed. Someone requested that I add the Eureka to Talkeetna route so I added that in a separate poll below - Blogger in its infinite wisdom won't let me change the original poll after voting has started.
The poll is informative and fun but what I didn't realize when I posted it was that the route and dates for the race have already been chosen. Luc Mehl has generously taken over organizing (thank you again to Michael Martin for many years of service). The route chosen is a completely new one and looks to be challenging.
