The Birkie office is buzzing as we get everything ready for participants of the 11th annual Birkie Trail Run, Relay & Trek events on Saturday, Sept. 21. Our new participant gifts arrived yesterday! Today, more boxes of door prizes arrived from our sponsors, and we confirmed the menu for our famous finish-line cookout picnic, again catered by the one-of-a-kind Brick House Cafe. If you haven't signed up already, here's what you can do to get to the starting line of your favorite event and distance! Also see RACE DAY TIPS below (including advice from the women's record holder of the Birkie Trail Marathon).
