Femundløpet takes Covid-19 seriously and takes note that national authorities have a fear of import infection when crossing the border. The authorities announced during the press conference on Wednesday that they will strengthen the focus to reduce the infection rate from across borders.
Based on today’s dialogue and advice from the municipal chief in Røros, Femundløpet has decided that foreign participants that must cross the border into Norway per. January 15, 2021, can not participate. Foreign participants who have already settled, or arrived in Norway, is in the same category as Norwegian participants. The information will also be communicated directly to the mushers.
We have been looking forward to meeting our foreign participants to participate in a raw and exciting race.
We hope to see you on the trail next year !
