BG 40 Amy F

Amy Flakne

Windom, MN

I am a dog musher from Maple Lake, MN, which is 40 miles west of Minneapolis. I own a kennel of 25 Alaskan Huskies on 80 beautiful wooded acres of rolling hills and ponds. My husband of 23 years, Mark, is handling for me. I couldn’t do this sport without his support! He keeps the meat freezer full and fixes things when I break them, and handles for me in every condition. We have 3 kids, two college students and a high schooler. This is my second time running the Beargrease 40, last year we had a lot of fun on the trail and are happy to be back!

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START RUNNING SLED DOGS AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED?

38, during a mid life crisis I decided I wanted to be a dog musher! Because life’s too short to sit on the sidelines.

The “goodest” dogs
Need your help

What a sled dog looks forward to most after a long day of racing is a nice bed of straw! But guess what happened at last year’s race? Someone stole all our straw right before the race start! Thankfully, great fans like you helped us out during the final hour to provide this vital supply for our amazing dogs.

These dogs simply are the best – and we want to be able to continue treating them that way! Donations from fans like you make that possible. Would you find it in your heart to help us out? No amount is too small in sled dog world!
