End 2018 in healthy, Birkie style!
Held at the American Birkebeiner Trailhead in Cable, the Double Pole Derby is a fundraiser for youth ski teams in the Hayward/Cable area. Race on the Birkie Trail while supporting the future of skiing- a win-win for sure! Middle School/High School races are classic; citizen/collegiate race is freestyle – that means – skate, classic or even double pole the entire course if you like.
Bonus Event! High School/Middle School: Don’t miss the Spooner Holiday Dash on Friday, December 28th for High School/Middle School racers. Start Friday off with a freestyle race in Spooner and finish with a classic race in Cable!
