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. In this case your partipation will be transferred to the following year event. 

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. 

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 are not able to serve you hot soup at the finish but will provide you with a refreshment package to be enjoyed outside.
