The Canadian Birkebeiner is held east of Edmonton in Cooking Lake – Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area, the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village & Elk Island National Park. All courses are subject to change depending on weather & trail conditions.
This year’s Canadian Birkie also features three start waves, 9:00 am, 9:15, & 9:30; based on skier speed instead of event selection. This will allow skiers to go at a comfortable pace with minimal bottlenecks on the courses.
