General information: "Summer Biathlon" is a combination of running and rifle marksmanship. Summer biathlon uses the same format as the Olympic Winter version, except that running is substituted for skiing. The standard distance is a 5K. The rifles are .22 caliber. Shooting 2 1/2 inch targets at 25 meters. Rifles and ammunition will be provided. Personal rifles permitted.
Competitors begin with a 1 mile run that brings them to the shooting range. They lay down, pick up the rifle, shoot five shots at metal knock down targets, jump up, walk to the end of the range and continue the running. One mile later they are back at the range, and shoot five shots from the standing position. The race ends with a 1 mile dash to the finish. The is for overall time, penalty lap of 100 yards will be required running by each competitor for each missed target. The additional running distance will be completed at the time of the misses. Interval starts are used.
Teams will consist of a minimum of 3 members with a maximum of 5. We will score the top 3 times to determine a Championship team.
Top team will receive a trophy and all members of the top 3 teams will receive medals.
