The 41st Annual American Birkebeiner is North America’s largest cross-country ski event, attracting more than 10,000 skiers and spanning 50K from Cable to Hayward. Through Team JDRF; you can raise funds for JDRF as a part of your Birkie participation. Raise $150 and earn a Team JDRF cross-country ski hat; raise $250 and be entered into a drawing to win a trip to 2015 Birkebeinerrennet in Norway (includes entry for two people, three nights lodging and airfare) and go the distance and be one of the top ten fundraisers and receive a free 2015 American Birkebeiner registration.
