20-years of Birkie? Donít forget your Birchlegger suit...
Borah Teamwear is honored to continue its support of The Birchleggings Club, a group well known for its distinct purple bibs on race day that identify those who have completed an impressive 20 or more American Birkebeiners throughout their skiing career!
To celebrate this club, a special design was created to compliment the race bibs and includes race suits, jackets and accessories. John Dyste, Borah Teamwear’s National Winter Sports Manager said, “I’m continually amazed each year to see the number of purple and gold bibs crossing the finish line, a true testament to the legacy of this great race, we couldn’t be more proud to support this group.”
The exclusive collection is available online and all items are made-to-order for new members each year.

About the Birchleggings Club
A Membership Club For All Skiers Who Have Completed Twenty or More American Birkebeiner® 55K Classic or 50K Freestyle Nordic Ski Marathons. The Birkie is Part of The Worldloppet Marathon Series. The genesis and purpose for the Birchleggings Club is from a letter that was written by John Kotar, one of the Birkie Founders, to the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation Board of Directors on November 8, 1992. Using the Founders Group as a nucleus the idea was to create an organization that would remain after all the original founders were gone or no longer participating in the American Birkebeiner ski race by recognizing all those skiers who completed 20 Birkebeiner races (not necessarily in consecutive order).
The Founders felt that the Birchleggings Club would be a strong promoter of continued participation in the American Birkebeiner and would contribute toward enhancement of the rich traditions that mark the Birkie as a unique skiing event in not only North America but the world!
