Iditarod 2019

Charley's Sled Dog Kennel, LLC is located in Knik, Alaska which is located 1 hour north of Anchorage. The kennel has 22 racing dogs and 8 retired dogs which are owned and cared for by Charley Bejna.  I am a one person operation, so it sometimes takes awhile to respond to emails on this website. I appreciate your continued patience.

I would like to thank all of our great sponsors for making this possible to continue mushing in mid-distance races and in the Iditarod.  We appreciate it very much and always welcome any type of donations to the kennel throughout the year.  I am racing in the 2019 Iditarod to raise awareness that being a type 1 diabetic may slow you down, but you can still live a normal life as long as you take care of yourself.





We have officially signed up for the 2019 Iditarod!





On Friday October 19, Brown and I decided to take a ride to headquarters and sign up for our 7th Iditarod in 2019. I will continue to raise awareness for diabetes as its a disease that is affecting myself and others on a daily basis. I will be having a (CGM) continuous glucose monitor that will help me control my blood sugars along the race. I'm very excited to try this and see how it does in the extreme conditions.   






We are currently training 2 teams of 12. The trails are wet in areas and the dogs are loving it. Hoping for snow soon. 




We had some recent visitors that are eating the rest of the raspberries. Momma moose and her calves have been hanging around the kennel lately.
