May 19, 2020

Henrik and Jakob Ingebrigtsen will be lining up in a 5km race in Stavanger - just 15 kilometres north of their hometown of Sandnes - where they have their sights on the Norwegian record of 13:37 which is held by Sondre Nordstad Moen.

“We had to make sure that the course was measured and the competition approved before we said yes,” said their coach and father Gjert as reported by ABC Nyheter.

The race has been fully adapted to comply with health and infection control rules. The athletes will line up in grid format and there will be a half-a-minute gap between the two pools.
