A useful post

If you read this article, it will be easier to follow the Finnmark Race 2022.

The semi-old man on this picture is me, Trond Anton, and my job is a.o. to be the Head of Communications for the Finnmark Race (Finnmarksløpet). In this article, I try to help those of you who want to follow us on digital surfaces to succeed with just that.

On the front of our web pages, you will find very visible links to our most used services.

Table of results provides you with all the information you need about participants and will be continually updated throughout the race.
The GPS tracking shows contestants’ position on the map. This is usually updated every five miutes, however, in areas with poor connectivity that may not always be the case.

We will also provide links to external media.

Let met tell you a little bit about how to follow the Finnmark Race through Norwegian media.
We are often asked whether Norwegian broadcaster NRK will have shows from the race. The answer is yes. Here is the NRK1 broadcast schedule. Times given are Norwegian time/CET.

Friday 11 March  22:25 hrs
Saturday 12 March 22:00 hrs
Sunday  13 March 22:05 hrs
Monday 14 March 20:45 hrs
Tuesday 15 March 20:10 hrs
Wedsnesday 16 March 20:40 hrs
Thursday 17 March 20:40 hrs
Friday 18 March 22:25 hrs

 

iFinnmark will broadcast via web TV from the race. In fact, its streaming runs live 24/7. This year, the live stream is not behind a paywall, but rather open to all viewers and free for all.

Also a good tip, the QPAWS-app which can ble downloaded for free in App Store og Google Play.
GPS-tracking, results, push messages and pictures/updates from the trail.

We will publish the most important news here, on our web site. If you want to see a whole lot more from the race, we highly recommend our Facebook page, our Instagram account and – new this year! – our TikTok.

The race has three classes. For more than one week, participants race and rest and race and rest. Perhaps it is difficult to keep track of where the mushers are and when they will arrive at the next checkpoint.

This form contains estimates for when the first teams may be expected to arrive at all checkpoints for all classes (in Norwegian, but easily comprehensible).

You will find the program here, on our web page. Please note that the FL-1200 class starts Friday 11 March at 16:00, whereas the FL-junior and the FL-600 classes start on Saturday 12 March at 13:00 hrs CET.

Any questions? Feel free to send us an email.

Welcome to the most beautiful adventure of the entire winter!
