38th Annual American Birkebeiner Event Highlights
Last Updated: 12/30/2013
The American Birkebeiner was started by Tony Wise in 1973 and patterned after a similar race in Norway. It’s North America’s largest and most prestigious cross-country ski marathon and celebrates its 38th anniversary in a couple of days. More than 8,000 skiers are expected to participate in the event that spans from Cable to Hayward. If you’re not signed up for the race but still want to be a part of the action, here are some ideas for you and the family.
Hayward’s annual American Birkebeiner Race added some fun, new activities to its already full line-up this year. A new Birkie Snow Sculpture Contest will be held February 24-25 with both professional and amateur sculptors participating. On February 25 the first 5K Barkie Birkie Skijor Race will be held. (Skijoring, a blend of cross-country skiing and dog sledding, is a sport gaining rapid popularity and this is a great chance to learn more about it.) Finally, the first Birkie Giant Ski Race will be held on February 25 with 6-person teams “sprinting” on giant 25-foot skis in a head-to-head competition. A complete list of events for the week can be found here.
