Race registration for the 2010 Birkie and Kortelopet is now closed.
“We have received a large number of race registrations since we announced that race registration would close at 2 p.m. on Wed., Feb. 3,” said Ned Zuelsdorff, Executive Director of the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation (ABSF). “At this time we are still processing those entries and we anticipate that we will have our largest field of skiers ever, with around 7900 entrants.”
There are currently 175 skiers registered for the 12K Prince Haakon, an event that has a registration cap of 250 skiers. Race registration for the Prince Haakon will remain open until the cap is reached for this event.
All skiers who are currently registered may make changes in their race applications (i.e. switching technique, switching between the Birkie/Korte, submitting qualifying race information) until 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15 by calling (715) 634-5025.
As of Wednesday, Birkie/Korte Skate Waves 1, 2, 3, 4 as well as Birkie/Korte Classic Wave 7 are all closed. Skiers using qualifying times will be assigned to the first available wave based on their qualifying information.
