Protective measures in place

Helsinki Marathon goes ahead

Helsinki Marathon
Sat 22 August 2020

The Helsinki Marathon (FIN) will be held as planned on 22 August.

Protective measures are in place as follows:

  • Participants will be divided in smaller start groups
  • There will be enough space in start groups/start area to keep distance to other runners
  • Start and Finish area will be built to be more spacious than normally
  • We kindly instruct our runners to keep a safe distance to other runners. We hope you all will show understanding for the exceptional practicalities that in the end enable the event during these challenging times

Based on the guidance given by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare it is not allowed to participate in a public event if you have any symptoms related to illness caused by coronavirus (including fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle pain, fatigue, rhinitis, nausea, diarrhoea, or a sudden loss of smell and/or taste). “If you have any of these symptoms, you cannot take part in the event,” warned race organisers.
