More than 1000 foreign participants
More than 1000 foreign skiers are registered for the main event, Birkebeinerrennet 19. March. Nordic citizens are on the top of the country list with Denmark, Sweden and Finland passing 150 participants.
Germany is also passing 100 and is followed by USA and Tsjekkia, Switzerland, Italia, Island, France and Great Britain complete this picture of a popular international ski race. We do value this brotherhood of skiers by those troubled times.
The numbers for SkateBirken on Friday are also showing increasing interest from foreign skiers.
The weather forecasts are not quite settled yet, but it looks unlikely that snow falls will occure. In that situation we can promise the well knowed Birken «Trikkeskinner», that to say close to iron rail tracks.
We look forward to welcome our foreign ski friends to Birken 2022.
