Whether you ski, bike, hike, or run on the Birkie Trail, your sponsorship as a Birkie Trail Friend is an integral part of our collective efforts to improve and maintain the world-famous Birkie Trail system! 100% of your tax-deductible sponsorship fee is used to support the trail.
Our Trail Friends select a K marker to sponsor for 3 years. They are recognized with a custom engraved 6 ½” x 6 ½” plaque at the k marker of their choice. Here are a few examples:
There are k markers available on the Birkie, Classic, and Birkie Ridge trails. Premium trail markers are $500 per year, most others are $300, and there are also a few $200 markers on the Birkie Ridge loop. There is a 3-year sponsorship commitment that can be paid annually by January 15 of each year, or all at once at a discounted rate ($50 off the 3-year total). All sponsorship contributions will be solely used to maintain the American Birkebeiner Trail System and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law since the ABSF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Tell us your Birkie Trail Friends K-marker story. Whether you are a Birkie skier, spectator, volunteer, or just enjoy supporting the Birkie Trail and all it stands for, email Chris McGrath at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a token of our appreciation, all new and existing Trail Friend sponsors who sign up for a 3-year commitment will receive a complimentary Trail Friends appreciation plaque that can be proudly displayed in your office, home, wax room, or anywhere else you’d like!
All ski and bike clubs can now be a Trail Friends Sponsor for 50% off the standard rate! It’s one way we can give back to the clubs that support our mission of promoting an active, healthy lifestyle.
