Astrid Øyre Slind celebrated when she beat Therese Johaug in the sprint and won Birkebeinerrennet 2022.

Birkebeinerrennet is increasing the total prize money by over 60,000 Norwegian Krones (NOK) for the event in 2023. 

In addition to the laurel wreaths, honors and pride, Birkebeinerrennet winners now receive 70,000 Norwegian Krones for their victories, with the same amount for women and men.

“The increase in prize money is important for the future of the races, and Birkebeinerrennet is now taking a big step forward. That they manage to do it in the current economic situation, with sky-high energy prices and such uncertainty in the World in general, is impressive,” says Anton Karlsson, Ski Classics Sports Director.

Prize Money For Birkebeinerrennet 2023

  • 1st place 70,000 NOK (previously 60,000)
  • 2nd place 40,000 NOK (previously 30,000)
  • 3rd place 20,000 NOK (previously 15,000)
  • 4th place 10,000 NOK (previously 7,000)
  • 5th place 6,000 NOK (previously 4,000)
  • 6th place 4,000 NOK (previously 3,000)

In line with the remaining Grand Classics events

Birkebeinerrennet is one of the four Grand Classics events in Ski Classics, one of the most important and prestigious races in the long-distance series. The other three Grand Classics races are Vasaloppet in Sweden, Marcialonga in Italy, and Jizerská50 in the Czech Republic. 

With the increase in prize money, Birkebeinerrennet is now on par with Marcialonga. 

“Of the events that are part of the Ski Classics Pro Tour, Vasaloppet is the race that awards the most prize money. Birkebeinerrennet is now on the same level as the other races included in the Grand Classics, i.e., Marcialonga and Jizerská50,” says Karlsson.
