These races can be very harsh and have to dog team to a conclusion of not surviving. But also the mushers can be thrown off the sled and left behind which leads to mushers also having a possible passing. Not just that can lead to the dog and mushers passing, much more like not having enough food, dehydration, and frostbite.
