Serrano will join the Birkie staff in September, after moving to Wisconsin from his home in High Falls, New York. A University of Vermont graduate, Serrano coached the Catamounts for six seasons, and also coached the USA Biathlon Association squads. His most recent work as a consultant and technical delegate for the International Ski Federation prepared him for a new role with the Birkebeiner.
“Allan comes to the Birkie with a wealth of knowledge of Nordic ski racing,” said Sue Scheer, president of the American Birkebeiner Foundation Board. “As we continue the tradition of excellence that the Birkie is known for, Allan’s skills will be put to good use immediately.”
