With the security fee you can make following changes: 

- Postpone your participation to the next year for a force majeur reason like business trip, Finnish military refresher training exercise or similar. 

- Transfer your participation to another person. 

- Change your participation (e.g. rebooking for a shorter distance)

In case of illness, please send us (info@tremk.com) the medical certificate and you can then postpone your participation by one year or transfer the registration to another person.
