Changes to restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 epidemic as of 1 June 2020: gatherings and public events in Finland
Public events with a maximum of 50 persons will be allowed as of 1 June 2020. The restrictions apply to public events and public meetings organised indoors and outdoors. Public events and public meetings of more than 50 and a maximum of 500 persons in indoor and enclosed outdoor spaces can be organised under special arrangements. Public events with more than 500 persons are prohibited until 31 July 2020.
As a result of the restrictions and the recommendations, most of the running events have been canceled or postponed. We strive to keep the events calendar of the international running events in Finland as up-to-date as possible.
We hope to see you in Finland soon! If this is not possible in 2020, then hopefully in 2021!
