Legacy of the American Birkebeiner – Presented by Tom Kelly

Feb 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Longtime friend of the Birkie and skiing historian, Tom Kelly, will take you back to the origins of the Birkie, regaling the crowd with some of the legendary stories of the race’s roots. He’ll take you inside the mind of Tony Wise, a native son of Hayward, WI, whose vision created a ski race that has become a lifestyle for tens of thousands of participants, become a landmark event in northwestern Wisconsin, and an iconic festival of Nordic cross-country skiing. Kelly is currently the USSA’s VP of Communications. Free will offering at the door.
