        FIS World Cup Ruka Nordic 2019 starts the season with Cross Country and Nordic Combined. The Ski Jumping season starts a week before Ruka Nordic in Wisła, Poland. This year Ruka Nordic returns to the familiar 3-day programme, which includes altogether 11 World Cup competitions – more than in any other event this season!

         

        On the News section we will publish text, video and photo material that one can use and quote freely.

        All medal ceremonies are held immediately after the competition has ended. There is a SkiBus transport to the competition area about every hour. In the mornings, private transports are provided for members of the media and event officials. The transport is free of charge by showing the accreditation pass.

        You can find the starting lists and results of the competitions in the “results”-section.

        Room reservations have been made to accommodate members of the media at the Holiday Club Kuusamon Tropiikki.
