Aliy Zirkle has taken the lead in the 2013 Iditarod. She checked into the Grayling checkpoint at 9:54 a.m. Friday.

Aaron Burmeister and Jake Berkowitz arrived in Grayling about 30 minutes apart, at 11:06 a.m. and 11:37 a.m., respectively.

Martin Buser and Sonny Lindner round out the top-5, and are on the 18 mile run from Anvik to Grayling.

Buser is the only one of the five leaders who has taken both the mandatory 8-hour and 24-hour layovers.

All five have completed the 24-hour layover.
