Individual Race and Sprint Relay for Youth and Juniors 6 years old to High Schoolers
The Junior Birkie, presented by Gear West, finishes at the Birkie Finish Line on Main Street in Hayward. There are three race distances for the different age groups. All registered skiers will get a Junior Birkie hat.
The race is open for all junior age groups. The relays will start and finish in downtown Hayward on the Birkie Finish Line. Teams are composed of 2 or 3 members (depending on age group) of the same gender and age group. Teams may represent a club or school team, but no affiliation with each other is necessary. If you would like to do the team relay but are without a team, indicate that in your registration and we will do our best to match you up with another racer needing a teammate. Unofficial teams of mixed gender and/or ages will be allowed to race, but will not be eligible for awards.
