Important information for 2021

It is important to note that especially this year the Tampere Marathon event can only be attended when 100% healthy. If you feel any symptoms of flu or corana virus, please contact Race Director. Naturally, if you are in quarantee or in isolation, you must not participate.

In the current circumtances, please prepare to special arrangements when visiting the race office, when preparing for the start, on the route refreshment stations as well as in the finish area. We trust that every participant acts in a responsible way and takes other runners, volunteers and spectators into consideration in all interactions with them. 

Please note that a face mask or visor must always be worn when visiting the race center. All the participants must also wear a face mask in the start and finish area. 

We at Tampere Marathon will make everything we can to ensure a safe race. There will e.g. be hand sanitizer available throughout the race experience. This year we hope to be allowed to serve you hot soup at the finish but in case that is not possible, we will provide you with a refreshment package to be enjoyed outside.

Let's keep running safely!
