• Adventure. Truth. Accountability. Onward.

ATAO Kennel is the distance and mid-distance racing sled dog kennel of Will Troshynski in Fairbanks, Alaska. Our goal is to keep a small kennel of happy, heathy teammates who get to do what they love most of all: run. Along the way, we aim to compete in the premier Alaskan and Yukon sled dog races such as the Iditarod and Yukon Quest.

ATAO is also part of a bigger project to take an honest look at accomplishing your dreams while struggling with depression. ATAO Adventure is Will’s blog about mushing, boxing, and running to cope with mental illness.
