20th August: Event is cancelled.
The progress of the Covid-19 situation and particularly the changes in restrictions applied by the Finnish government in the past week has led to a decision to cancel all IOF MTBO events in Finland 9th to 13th September 2020. The situation today looks very different from the situation when IOF made the decision to go forward with the organisation of EMTBOC (including Juniors) and WMMTBOC at the beginning of July. At that point in time, Finland was successively removing entry and quarantine restrictions and it appeared across Europe that the Covid-19 situation was settling down. That is no longer the case and restrictions are being tightened in many European countries and not just in Finland. Concerns from member federations and athletes that were planning to enter has also been raised. As an international organisation we need to take our part in responsibly responding to the global pandemic.

The organisers are considering to still proceed with the races as national events and maybe as World Ranking Events. The decision will be made in the coming days. SEA, Mark Stodgell, reports world class maps and courses and excellent terrain.

Further information and contacts:
For entries refunds questions, please contact the organiser email: info@2020mtbo.fi . The organiser will retain a portion of the entry fee in order to cover committed costs.

For general questions about the decision please contact IOF Office on: iof@orienteering.sport
