”Boo-Athlon”Run & Shoot" 2018

Invitational Run-and-Shoot Air Rifle Biathlon Event

 

DATE: Sunday, October 28th, 2018

LOCATION: Highlands Nordic Centre, Duntroon. Race office will be located in the white portable.

RACE: This event will offer new and returning Biathletes the opportunity to participate in a “timed trial” run and shoot that will allow coaches, athletes & officials to refresh their focus on competition procedures (i.e. course marshalling, rifle zeroing, individual starts, range procedures, IBU rules & regulation compliance) while also providing useful baseline data as our sport enters the “Pre-Competition Sport-specific” preparation phase of the Biathlon training year. The morning race will be done as individuals and will include a total of 5 x running loops with 4 bouts of shooting in between. Competitors will run one penalty loop (50 m) for each missed target.

The individual event will be followed by a 2-person team relay race in the afternoon. In keeping with the theme of the race and for a little extra fun, those athletes that wish to dress in costume will be entered into a costume contest (Optional). They will be judged by a panel of costume experts on originality, scare factor and Funiest costume. Teams will be assigned by the OC and may be comprised of any combination of male, female, age, and/or club/unit affiliation. Beginning with a mass start of each team’s initial member, all racers will complete 3 running loops with 2 bouts of shooting before handing off to their next teammate (or heading to the finish line). As per IBU rules, each competitor will have 8 shots available for each bout of shooting. All shots must be fired or all 5 targets hit before leaving the range in each bout. Athletes must complete a penalty loop (50 m) for each missed target.

REGISTRATION: Registration will be available on Zone 4 at 8:00 am Monday, October 1stand be available until Friday October 26that 5:00 pm. www.zone4.com. 2 Person relay team information will be posted after the morning individual race is complete, please confirm participation during morning registration intake.
