Midnight Sun organiser reports on local restrictions

Situation in Norway

_Nils Heatta of Midnight Sun Marathon reports:_ In Norway everything has been shut down. Schools, kindergartens, shops, hotels, sports arenas are all closed. Training in groups of more than five is prohibited and you have to keep the 2m distance. We were unable to travel from southern Norway to the north without ending up spending 14 days in quarantine.

Now things are opening up again and we can travel inside Norway – but only with special reason. People are still staying at home and do not travel much.

Today [6 May] there will be an announcement from the national health authorities about sporting activities. We expect that training in a group of up to 50 people will be allowed. From 15 June this will perhaps increase to 200 people if they can maintain a distance of one metre. The ban on larger gatherings will remain until 1 September so nearly all races have been cancelled or postponed until after then.
