Rookie Celeste Davis passed under the Burled Arch at 8:06 p.m., earning the Red Lantern award for being the last of 55 mushers to finish The Last Great Race this year. The 37-year-old musher made the trek from Willow to Nome in 13 days, 5 hours, 6 minutes and 40 seconds, giving her the fastest Red Lantern time in race history.
After Davis's arrival, Iditarod 38 ended with the traditional gesture of blowing out the Widow's Lamp, signifying that all mushers and their teams were safely off the Iditarod trail.
