CHALLENGE TURKU 2021 arrangements are in full swing and we anticipate that we will be able to execute the event as planned on 31 July  – 1 August 2021. The pandemic situation in the Turku Region has eased significantly and we believe that the situation will improve even more. We are committed for the competition to be conducted as safely as possible, and in this connection we have made agreed on some proactive adjustments to the event set up.

The side activities of the event have been significantly reduced (eg Expo, food services) and we will put all our efforts on carrying out the races. It is also unlikely that the use of shower facilities will be possible. We regret to note that this year, no participation medals will be awarded in the Sprint / Middle Distance race due to difficulties concerning shipments . Finisher shirts are given to Sprint and Middle Distance finishers.

We are constantly monitoring official regulations and updating the guidelines as required by them. Applicable travel advisory information can be found HERE.

CHALLENGE TURKU is committed to the Clean & Safe Turku guidelines as a responsible event organizer to protect our athletes, volunteers and visitors from the Covid-19 virus.
