New map for Half Marathon – uusi reitti Puolimaratonille

One must first complete 3 loops and then continue straight for 900 meters more. Then one must make a U-turn (on the map between numbers 20 and 1) and go directly to the finish line which is inside the Arena

Ensin juostaan iso lenkki kolmeen kertaan, tämän jälkeen jatketaan matkaa vielä 900 metriä, jonka jälkeen tehdään U- käännös (kartassa olevien numeroiden 20 ja 1 välissä). Tämän jälkeen juostaan suoraan maaliin, joka sijaitsee Areenan sisällä.

Along the course there will be two assigned spots for special drinks (near numbers 7 and 16).
LOC will provide water stations near numbers 13 and 3.

Reitin aikana on kaksi merkittyä paikkaa omille juomille (lähellä numeroita 7 ja 16). Järjestäjien tarjoamat vesipisteet ovat lähettä numeroita 13 ja 3.

With an authentic heritage in athletics and a deep connection to the outdoors, KARHU follows the Finnish principles of design simplicity and running purity.

KARHU shoes and apparel are sold globally at running and lifestyle specialty retailers.

 “It is a great honour for the KARHU brand to partner with World Masters Athletics in Tampere this summer. For me, it’s always a special occasion to come back to Finland, the land where I achieved the most important victory in my running career back in 1971. I often trained in Finland during the summer, and I’m really happy to once again connect KARHU to its Finnish roots. I wish all the best to the athletes that will bring their passion for sport to Tampere, and I hope they will discover the quality of the KARHU products in our booth!”

Deadline extension until end of 2nd of May

At the end of registration, more than 4330 athletes from 87 countries have submitted their entries for the World Championships in Tampere. LOC and WMA are looking forward to host the athletes.

Against the background of the war in Ukraine combined with the effects of the pandemic, some countries were able to plan participation only very late. To give them the opportunity to register correctly WMA Council and LOC Tampere have agreed to an extension of 5 days for all.

The deadline in the registration system will stay open until the end of the day on 2nd May everywhere in the world.

However, after that the registration system must be closed to ensure proper preparation of the championship for all.
