New start time and location! 11:30 am behind the Hayward Primary and Intermediate Schools
The Barnebirkie is presented by Johnson Bank & Swiss Miss.
This is where Birkie Dreams begin! Imagine nearly 1000 kids skiing on Main Street to the iconic finish line of the American Birkebeiner! Kids can choose to ski either a 1/2 km, 1 km or 3 km course.
