Swix, Presenting Sponsor of the Birkie skate race, is offering an $1,100 wax and tool package.

And, ALS Association, the Birkie’s Skiers for Cures partner, again has a great tech prize for skiers—the chance to win a GoPro Hero5 Session. There are also 10 other enter-to-win offers on everything from wax to ski boots, ski poles, a $250 gift card, free 2018 Birkie entry, bike gear, and more, all from top industry brands.

As a participant, you receive the Virtual Race Bag in January, well before the Birkie events, so you can take advantage of the offers while you’re gearing up for your 2017 Birkie experience. Dive in and take a look around, enter to win some great packages, and shop the special deals and discounts.

It’s a great way to:

. Choose a special gift for the skier in your life, or yourself!
. Celebrate your first Birkie, Kortelopet, or Prince Haakon
. Get what you need to train or just enjoy the winter season
. Reward yourself for getting out there, to the trail and the starting line. This is your time!

The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation made the switch to the Virtual Event Bag in 2012 as a “green” alternative to the traditional swag bag. It is a user-friendly, online format, and participants get far more than is usually possible with the printed materials in a traditional race bag.

“We are thrilled to again partner with the American Birkebeiner, our sixth year of the relationship,” said Gary Schwake, Senior Director of Strategic Business Development.

“It’s been a great relationship,” added Susan Kendrick, Sponsorship Director for the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation. “And, each year Birkie sponsors come up with bigger and better ways to use the Virtual Event Bag to do great things for our Birkie participants, their friends, and families.”

“The Virtual Event Bag was a good way for the Birkie to go green, especially as our events have grown,” said Ben Popp, Executive Director of the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation. “We hope it’s something our skiers really look forward to, and use. Our sponsors have included some very generous offers and big prizes this year. Be sure to take a look!”
