March 12, 2020 | 3:00 pm

On the basis of the health authorities’ guidance in the difficult corona situation, the Norwegian Sports Federation and the Olympic and Paralympic Committee request that all sports, training and competitions cease with immediate effect. This also applies to the Finnmarksløpet.

– This decision unfortunately has major consequences for the sports activity in our 11,000 sports teams across the country. But we are prepared to take the guidelines that come from the Norwegian health authorities with the utmost seriousness and we will take the measures necessary to prevent the spread of infection in society, says sports president Berit Kjøll.

– We must follow the decision of the Norwegian Sports Association. There is no other alternative for us than to stop the race, says the general manager of Finnmarksløpet, Svanhild Pedersen.
