Record number of skiers registered for 2010 Birkie

Fri, Aug  21, 2009 - By Birkie

Over 3700 skiers have registered for the 2010 American Birkebeiner and Kortelopet.

"We are currently 1400 skiers ahead of last year's registrations at this time," said Executive Director, Ned Zuelsdorff. "People took advantage of the lowest entry fee and made sure they secured their position in the 2010 Birkie of Kortelopet by registering early."

In order to assure the best quality race experience possible the 2010 Birkie and Korte races will be capped at 7,500 skiers. The Board of Directors, Staff and Race Chiefs are working on addressing the infrastructure limitations, such as limited parking, congestion in getting to the start line, skier bag storage, etc.

"We plan to continue to grow the American Birkebeiner event in the future, but will not sacrifice the quality you expect from the Birkie," said Zuesldorff.
