The American Birkebeiner... It all began in 1973, when 35 determined cross country skiers gathered on the starting line for the American Birkebeiner. Little did they know...they were about to change everything. Today, the Birkie provides year-round, healthy, active lifestyle events for thousands of adventurous spirits of all ages and abilities.
