Biography

Charley Bejna, self-described adventurer, was born and raised in Addison, Illinois. Charley has owned and operated Charley’s Landscaping Company for 24 years. His attraction to the last frontier began when he first came to Alaska in 1991 with his dad. They toured most of the State together. He participated in the 2007 Iditarod as Bruce Linton’s Idita-Rider and as his tag sled rider in 2008. Also in 2008, he met GB Jones at his kennel where he drove a small team down the trail. He then became GB’s handler and worked as his tag sled driver in the 2011 Iditarod, which sealed his interest in racing. Charley is looking to spend another fun winter with his dogs!!!!!
