Here's another critical announcement from the Birkie office. If you were late getting in your registration, this might be the ticket for you!
Classic Trail Forerunners are needed for the 2012 American Birkebeiner. We need four classic skiers to ski the Birkie Classic Trail from the Birkie Start line on race day, at least as far as OO. These skiers will start at 6:30 AM and must be able to reach OO (27K) by 9:00 AM. These skiers are welcome to continue on to the Hayward finish line.
Two forerunners are needed to ski from the Birkie start line to 9K and then return on the Kortelopet Trail to the Telemark Korte finish line (23K). These skiers will start at 6:30 AM on race day and must be able to reach the Korte finish line at Telemark by 9:00 AM.
Two additional classic forerunners are need to start at OO at 7:30 AM to ski in the classic tracks to the Hayward finish line (27K), and able to complete the distance before 10:15 AM.
Forerunners will wear "Birkie Forerunner" bibs identifying themselves.
Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in being a forerunner. We will work out all logistics in the near future.
