Please note that all wave placements are subject to availability at the time of Wave Upgrade Request submission.

There are no refunds if your request does not result in an upgrade.

*Winter 2021 & 2022 results are only accepted for upgrades if the race was/is held under NORMAL race conditions: in-person, timed, normal starts, not multi-day, level of competition, etc. The adjustment factors are the same for each race across 2020, 2021 and 2022, as listed below. Please contact with any questions.

To calculate your wave placement, add the Adjustment Factor to your Percent Back from Event Winner. Go to your American Birkebeiner or Kortelopet event page -> Wave Placement -> Wave Upgrade Requests for detailed instructions and Wave Placement Charts. 2020, 2021 & 2022 results will all be placed based on 2020 PBE in seeding charts.
