Is your name on the list of participants?
If you cannot find you name on the list of participants, it could be for one of the following reasons: 1) you have not paid your entry fee or the payment has not yet been registered, or 2) when registering you requested that your details would not be published. If neither of these reasons is likely and more than a week has passed since you registered for the event, please contact the event office.
How do you confirm your entry?
You can confirm your entry to the race and pick up your race pack at the event office. The office is open on Friday 17th of August at 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm and on Saturday 18th of August at 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. Race number collection for pre-registered runners ends at 11:15 am and LATE ENTRY ends at 10:30 am. The event office is located at the Turku City Theatre. You will receive your running number as a text message on Friday if you entered your mobile number when registering for the race.

Do you have to defer your entry until next year?
If you have to defer your entry until next year because of injury or illness and you have paid the cancellation fee, please send a doctor’s note to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can defer your entry either before or after the event.
