All wave placements are subject to wave closures at the time of Wave Upgrade Request submission.

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

*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.

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 Tables.

Please contact registration@birkie.com with any questions.
