Going around the world at Töölönlahti

The movement challenge around the Töölönlahti bay has inspired thousands of walkers and runners. The goal was to complete a number of laps equivalent to the earth's circumference by the end of this year, but those 40,000 kilometres are already completed. Thanks to all the participants – you did it!
