Environmental beacon status for Offroad Finnmark
As one of very few sporting events, Offroad Finnmark is now certified as an Environmental Lighthouse. It obliges to organize a sports competition in Norway's and Europe's only proper wilderness area!
- We are happy and proud to be able to say that Offroad Finnmark is now certified as an Environmental Lighthouse. This means increased competence and extra focus on sustainability for us and in the interaction with our current and future partners. . We would like to extend a big thank you to our environmental lighthouse consultant Mariann Kristensen in Orinor for her brilliant assistance, says managing director Kjetil Johansen.
Offroad Finnmark's trail fund
Offroad Finnmark has grown to become Northern Norway's largest mountain bike race, and as you know, uses the fantastic nature around us as an arena. In line with the growing number of participants, we have to tackle sustainable development. The organization has therefore decided to create the "Offroad Finnmarks Stifond". This fund will help to facilitate a sustainable use of nature in connection with the race, before, during and after.
"We see that the tracks we are launching as this year's route are often used a lot both before and after the race. We must therefore take our share of the responsibility to ensure that wear and tear is minimal," explains managing director Kjetil Johansen.
Who contributes to the fund?
The way we intend to raise funds for the fund is three-fold. First and foremost, we hope that all our participants want to contribute, which is why we have included a voluntary option to contribute an optional sum in the registration solution. We follow up ourselves by donating NOK 10,000. In addition, we will seek funds where there are opportunities for this.
Will benefit everyone
We want as many people as possible to benefit from our trail fund. Therefore, we will also open up the possibility for teams, associations, hiking teams, mountain lodges to apply for funds from our fund.
Contribute to Alta municipality's project
