It was a marathon day for the dogsledders. They managed to get to within 2 miles of the North Pole before hitting a big lead. They searched and searched for a way across and finally found one. They reached the North Pole around 5 PM local time (Norwegian time). They and had a couple hours to celebrate before the helicopters came to pick everyone up and fly them back to the basecamp.
The other two ski teams spent the day not far from the North Pole. Now everyone is back at basecamp, which is mostly packed up for the end of the season. There is only a runway and pilot tent left.
