Information: 715-558-6251

Postponed from February 13, 2021

Qualifying race for the Birke and Kortelopet with proceeds going to local community projects of the Hayward Lions Club.This Lions Club Fundraiser and FUN race has no equal when it comes to preparing one mentally and physically for the American Birkebeiner. In other words, once you have completed the Pre-Birkie you will have the confidence to take on the mother of all XC marathon races, the American Birkebeiner.

The race will start and end at Birkie Ridge Trail Head, north of Seeley on Hwy 63. The short course will go to OO and back, and the long course will go to Gravel Pit Road and back.  Skiers will be able to start on a staggered, socially-distanced basis.  There is a possibility of moving the start times back in the day if the weather doesn't cooperate, but the race will go on regardless of the number of skiers who show up.

You can find race times and registration information when you visit Come and enjoy the day with the Hayward Lions at our Pre-Birkie, the “Best Birkie prep race in the Midwest!”
