UPCOMING INTERNATIONAL RUNNING EVENTS IN FINLAND 2020-2021

On 12 March 2020, the Finnish Government recommended that all public events with more than 500 attendees be cancelled until the end of May 2020 in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

On 22 April 2020 the Government decided that public events and gatherings of more than 500 people should continue to be banned until at least 31 July 2020. Under the Communicable Diseases Act, the Regional State Administrative Agencies can prohibit public events and gatherings for no more than one month at a time. As far as events in late summer and early autumn are concerned, an assessment will be made no later than the start of June.

As a result of these 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!
