Registration and info for 2024

September 14, 2023 | 2:33 pm

As always, we publish changes for next year’s race just before registration opens. In this article, we will present information and changes for Finnmarksløpet 2024. Registration will be opens from 15th September at 18.00. Finnmarksløpet starts in week 10.

The rules surrounding the registration itself have not been changed. For the senior classes, it is possible to sign up from 15th September up to and including 30th November. It is possible to apply for late registration after 30th November. In that case, it is mainly the number of registrants that determines whether it will be accepted. For the junior class, the deadline to register is 20th of February.

Anyone who registers and pays the registration fee before 30th of September can take part in the draw for a start number.
