Time to consider signing up for the Kortelopet, the Birkie’s sister event with a shorter distance. All levels of skiers participate in this event and I guarantee that a first year skier
with our program can accomplish this event if they attend practice (We had 2 first year skiers participate last year). Must be 13 years old to participate. Information at www.birkie.com. IMPORTANT: For 1st year participant, a registration scholarship is available. If interested you must notify Coach Phil Nelson by December 3rd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to Saturday’s Kortelopet a lot of our HS kids participate in the Jr. Birkie and HS team sprints on Friday. This is a great event but is not included with our team race schedule. Some support is available at the race, however, is considered a family event. Families and athletes are responsible for accommodations, lodging, registration, etc.
Following the theme for the Birkie & Korelopet, check out the highlight reel from February 2015. This is an amazing weekend to experience!
